My name is Karen and my father, Norman Boike was aboard the HMS Hartland on the night in Oran. He passed away Jan. 4, 2010 but I have all kinds of information about that fatebull night. He never talked about it but shortly after my Mom died I finally heard the whole story. He was one of six marines aboard the Hartland and he received the purple heart. Dad and I shared the interest of looking for relatives of those that were aboard the Hartland. I have not done that since he passed away and I was thrilled to get on here and see the posts.
