I am writing on behalf of Derek William Allaway, my husband. He has asked me to let you know how much he appreciates your newsletter, which brings back a lot of memories of the HMS Barham. He is now 91 years old, and enjoying life in Spain, where we have lived for the past 25 years.
As you may know, we met in Alexandria in 1941, and were married in 1942. My eldest daughter was born in Alexandria. We lived in Birmingham, where Derek was a dental surgeon for 40 years, but I always longed for the Mediterranean, so here we are...
We are sorry Derek can't attend any of your functions, and I join him in wishing the association and all its members our very best.
