Able Seaman Tom Stephenson 


Harrogate Herald - 20th June 1917

W H Breare letter

Torpedoman G Stephenson looked in on me on Monday, having arrived home on leave Sunday. He has sailed far since he was last home in February, and seen much; amongst other things he came across the American destroyers on their way here. His brother Tom Stephenson is "with him" at sea, so to speak, but they are so situated they cannot meet or see each other. Tom is in a submarine and George is not. See?

I was remarking what a pity our submarines cannot fight U-boats. Stephenson told me that on one occasion a U-boat tried to get a sugar ship, but was sunk by an E-boat.
