    Hello there everyone!

    I have been researching the survivors of HMS Daring as it seems very little is known about them. As of right now, I have found out the following names...

    Lieutenant Laurence Andrew Rogers (Incorrectly spelt Lawrence in Navy Lists)
    Able Seaman William McBride
    Able Seaman William Edward Woodnutt
    Able Seaman Alfred Lionel Willcox

    …Unfortunately, I do not know much about William McBride besides his age and some personal information. I do not know about his birth date (I believe it is 1917 after research. He was an orphan and lived with his uncle in Paisley, Renfrewshire, Scotland. Out of the 10 possible William McBrides it could be, there is one from the town next to Paisley that was born in 1917) or his death date. I also do not know of the name of the 5th survivor. This man was picked up by HMS Inglefield, and that is all I know!

    I am creating a website on Royal Navy Crewlists that focuses on crewlists that haven't been focused on (such as HMS Daring), and any help would be very helpful!
