I'm Looking for any information on Eric Charles Keane Royal Marine Corporal. He served on HMS Euryalus from 1941/1942, and his action station was possibly in X or Y Turret.

In 1941 he was only 16 years old, but I believe he added 2 years to his age so he could enlist. He got a tattoo in Malta in 1942 of an English rose with a dagger through it. He always regretted that.

He later served as a gunner on landing craft in the North African campaign and Salerno and Elba. He also saw service in Borneo or Burma.

He served with the Royal Marines until 1948-49 and in 1944 he was an Acting Temporary Corporal.
Please contact the Webmaster if you have any details.

Having just received my copy of the RNA HQ Roll Newsletter I noticed the inclusion of your website and wonder whether you would be interested in adding to your Links page the following websites:
HMS Londonderry: http://www.hmslondonderry.org/
HMS Scarborough: hhttp://www.hmsscarborough.info/
The Derry site was created for the 1st commission of the ship and bi-annual reunions are still held. The Scarborough site is dedicated to all the warships named Scarborough in the hope that we can keep the name alive here in the town of Scarborough and for old shipmates of both ships around the globe. I will of course if you wish, reciprocate with a link to your website from both of the above sites.

I am trying to contact an ex-Royal Marine Sergeant Keith Osborne who served with my father, Colour Sergeant Harry Woolfenden at the Royal Marine Training Centre, Ghain Tuffieha, Malta between 1957-60. Keith recently left a message on http://www.verdala.com/ for me about my father.
I would like to get in touch with him and would appreciate any leads please..
Please contact the Webmaster if you have any details.

I’m sorry to hear that your Association has been dissolved, a very sad occasion for all those who I’m sure put a lot of effort in trying to make it work.

Would it be possible to put a note on the web site for people to either join the Leander Face Book site or to contact me regarding the formation of a Leander Class Association.

Sorry to know the Euryalus Ass'n has closed down. If there are any members who wish to they can join our HMS Phoebe Association.

It has both cruiser and frigate members, they can join as associated and have the same rights as full members. There is also the Federation of Naval Associations they can join and still retain the Euryalus Association at no cost.
