Bill told me who was Jake…
He was Chief Petty Officer, Douglas T Laurie
His daughter once commented on the blog…
My Dad, Chief Petty Officer, Douglas T Laurie, was on his way to deck as he just finished his shift in the Engine Room when the Athabaskan was torpedoed . He too was taken Prisoner of War.
My Dad passed away April 19, 2013.
These were all brave men.
