HMS Thetis

Spotted this whilst googling Traeth Bychan beach in Anglesey, where the Thetis was sadly beached.

It's 26 minutes long but is especially interesting from 22 minutes onwards.

RIP those from Thetis.

Paul really enjoyed that so sad all them men lost their lives.

Had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Harry McLeith and listening to him talking about his experiences in cammel larids

He was a very nice man a gentleman.

Regards Bob
