Battle of the Atlantic commemorated

It's really poignant to see news articles this week remembering the merchant seamen killed during the war. I wish my granddad had lived to see it - he always felt that his little brother's death was forgotten by the country. My great-uncle Bobby was just 17 years old when he joined the merchant navy in 1941, and was killed only a few weeks later when his ship was shelled by a submarine and set on fire, making it impossible to launch the life boats. Bobby escaped on a raft, but died of his injuries and was buried at sea.
