Ivor Owen Bartlett

Tir-y-Berth-Bartlett-ShipIn November 1942, HMS Palomares took part in the Operation Torch landings in Algiers as an Anti Aircraft ship. The ship left Gibraltar on the 3rd and arrived at Algiers on the 8th. However the next day Palomares was hit by a bomb, suffering a large number of casualties, and, engulfed in flames, her steering gear was put out of action.
Those sailors who were killed were transferred to the corvette Samphire for burial at sea.
