Zeebrugge: Lt-Cdr casualty

Recommended Posts


Hi all. This is my first posting and I'm wondering if any learned souls out there would be able to help me track down any further information on my great great uncle: Lt-Cdr Harry Barge of the Royal Navy (b. circa 1885). The only piece of information I have about him comes from a newspaper article in 1932 regarding his father (Henry Barge: JP and Mayor of Poplar, London). It states that: "Mr Harry Barge held the position of a Lt-Cdr in the Navy, succumbed to an illness contracted in the epoch-making raid on Zeebrugge during the Great War".) Though I am reading Warner's latest book on the subject, how do I find out what ship he was on etc? What kind of illness I wonder?

Cheers! :)
