    As my sister\'s grandson is involved in a school project re his Great Grandfather being on the Breconshire when she went down in Malta Harbour, I can also confirm he was also part of the naval party who returned to the sinking vessel in order to release the vital supplies on board and I\'m proud to say my father\'s name was Allan Greer!
