GEORGE WILLIAM BEECHING... We would be interested in hearing from any known survivors who served with my Uncle George William Beeching on the HMS Ibis between 1940 and 1942 when the ship was hit by an airborne torpedo on 10 November. We believe he was a sick berth attendant. If any one has any photos, information or anecdotes we should be very grateful if these could be shared with us. He was also awarded the Albert Medal in gold post- humously. This was later stolen whilst on loan to a museum. If anyone has any information in respect of the medal or indeed any suggestions as to how we may be able to retrieve the medal, these would also be welcomed. Many thanks in anticipation of your help. Ian and Vicki Logan.
