Now appears I am 11 short ; all ratings! have you any more

Hello Ian, I have only these four `deffinite' POW Turkey ;

PARKHURST Thomas Milner James PO Tel P/J 8151

SMITH Jack Richard AB P 233822

TOMLINSON Thomas Henry L/Sto P/K 20431

TAYLOR Edward Charles C/Sto 283225

However, two more MAY have been E7 survivors.

You should check these by reference to their service No. in the NA ADM 188 / ??? series.

From theor submarine service card they were noted as beling on E7 at the time, but I have not a notation to that effect in my record.

HOOPER Reginald CPO Cox D/J 327

RYDER John L/Sto P/K 2794

Gents.

Found this in The Times, 4 Nov 1915.

I note two of the Leading Stokers were Royal Australian Navy. Both survived their incarceration:

GWYNNE, Ernest Alfred, Ldg. Sto., RAN 7475

http://naa12.naa.gov.au/scripts/imagine.as...mp;I=1&SE=1

Survived WW1. In 1937, signed on for another 5 years, so may have served in WW2.

WILSON, Archibald, Ldg. Sto., RAN 7501

http://naa12.naa.gov.au/scripts/imagine.as...mp;I=1&SE=1

Born South Oamaru, New Zealand.

Survived WW1

regards,

Martin

My Great Grandfather, Herbert Macklin, was the Chief ERA onboard the E7 when the boat was scuttled. I am also in touch with the relative of Asher Coates. Please do get in touch if you are a relative or have any photos, most especially of the crew.

My grandfather's brother, Frederick Hubbard, was a stoker aboard E7 and one of the men taken prisoner.  He died of disease while in captivity in 1916.  Here are a couple of pics of the crew, plus a notice inn the times in 1915.
