The reposting of two chapters of Jack Harker QSM book ‘ALMOST HMS NEPTUNE’ is in honour of Captain Rory Chambers O’Connor RN, his officers and his men of HMS Neptune who 75 years ago on 19th December 1941 made the supreme sacrifice.


These two chapters are pertinent to read at this time noting the significance of the upcoming loss of Neptune and the 150 New Zealanders who also lost their lives when she was sunk by mines.
