To the website author: many thanks for the information on this site - much appreciated.
A distant cousin, Ralph Omar Dunmore, was KIA on 23 Jul 43 and is commemorated on the Portsmouth memorial.
The family were told he had been murdered by the Japanese but the true story wasn't clear.
Thanks to your website, we can be fairly certain now he was a gunner on the Alcides.
