My father Ronald Pickard Leadind seaman RNR was on board H M S Hartland when it attempted landing in Oran harbour connected to Operation Torch.Hartland was sunk along with its sister ship H M S Walney with a great loss of life,my father survived and was taken prisoner of war for a short time,if there is anybody out there who has any information about other crew members please send through for me.
I knew nothing regarding my fathers exploits during the war when he served in the RNR as he never spoke of them - but I have now become intrigued, having exhausted all the formal channels i/e navy records etc I am now trying to seek further information. Thankyou.</HTML>
