Does anyone have any information on my Dad Jack Rutland? He was a British gunner on the Barnby when she was torpedoed in 1941. He died recently and I am researching his early life for a family history. He would never speak of those days - I think the horror of the sinking and the days in the lifeboat were never far away. I know he was picked up by HMS Aurora around the 30th May 1941. Any infor that you may have will be welcome.
