My father was aboard Umpire and was one of the last to escape and and after being brought ashore, kitted out was given survivors leave.
He eventually arrived home in the early hours with his new boots tied around his neck because they were so uncomfortable, all this having taken place on the day of my 6th birthday!

My CO in HMS Totem in 1956/7 was Edward Young’s Navigator in HMS Storm in the med during WW2.
