On top of that, a trip to the HMS Repulse will be at the end of April, while the Prince of Wales will be in October.  So tekkies, save money and let's go!

It would be interesting to know that there were Malay sailors from Malaya who died when the HMS Banka sank after a Japanese attack.  Names like Abdullah bin Badrom, Arshad Bin Ambi, Din bin Ali, Junid Bin Isa, Adnan Bin Hahran, Madar Bin Bakong, Minsuri Bin Malik, Jantan Bin Repin, are now etched on a name list on the HMS Banka memorial in Liverpool, England (http://beta-blogger.blogspot.com/2004_09_01_archive.html).

HMS Banka, a British minesweeper, is now resting in depths between 50-60m.

The two dutch subs, the O-16 and K-17 sank in the same area on the same day the Repulse and Prince of Wales sank.
