Has anyone ever heard of any 3rd Hussars being on a troop ship which sank? This is something I remember my mother telling us when we were children. I have sent for both the war diaries , and my father's army records, but they will take a while to arrive. There is a large section of his diary, from June 41 to March 42 which is totally illegible and if this story was true, it probably took place during that time. For at least some of that time, they were in Crete, and my father was not part of the Hussars who were sent to Java. Many thanks, if any of you have ideas.
