HMS Barham - 75th Anniversary

16 November 2016

25 November 2016 marks the 75th Anniversary of the loss of the British battleship HMS Barham. Over 860 of her crew were lost when the ship went down in the Mediterranean Sea in 1941 during the Second World War.

Most of those who died aboard Barham have no known grave but the sea. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission commemorates all of those who died. Their names can be found inscribed upon the three great Naval Memorials in the United Kingdom.

The majority are commemorated on the Portsmouth Naval Memorial, and many of their names can be found on Panels 45-61.
