|Bill Forster||Captain Richard Been Stannard VC DSO RD (21 August 1902 – 22 July 1977)|
I am assisting the V & W Destroyer Association set up a web site about the 69 V & W Class destroyers built at the end of WW1 and scrapped at the end of WW2.
The Duke of Edinburgh served on a V & W and sent the Associstion a message of support which can be seen on the web site here: http://www.vandwdestroyerassociation.org.uk/index.html
A fellow member of the association is Frank Donald, son of Lt Cdr ColinDonald RN, the CO of HMS VIMY, who was killed at Boulogne on the 23 May 1940 when Frank was a few weeks old.
We have been contacted by a guy whose Grandfather served on HMS VIMY when Richard Stannard was the CO. And I am hoping you can put us in touch with Sannard's family in the hope that they can assist us in telling the story of his time on HMS VIMY on the V & W web site about her: http://www.vandwdestroyerassociation.org.uk/HMS_Vimy/index.html

I believe Frederick Whirlpool was born "Humphrey James" in 1831.
