Leading Stoker (300050) John Moon, HMS Egmont

Recommended Posts

Good Afternoon

Looking for some information on Leading Stoker (300050) John Moon who died on 16th May 1918 whilst serving on HMS Egmont.

I have seen references to HMS Egmont as a Base vessel in Malta and would be interested to discover whether John Moon died as a result of enemy action or whether he died of illness - he was 39 at the time of his death and is buried in the Royal Naval Cemetery at Capuccini in Malta.

Thanks,

Nigel

Thanks, was Egmont a Malta base ship in 1918?

EGMONT was the base ship at Malta from 1906 to 1933. She carried the accounts of several Mediterranean units, including Auxiliary Patrol.

Many thanks, Horatio. Service card records that he died of a broken spine in an accident on Mimosa.
