Lt. William Benjamin James Harding DSC
« on: 08 July 2013 11:51:53 PM »

I am searching for information on a Commissioned Gunner called William Benjamin James Harding (born Dec' 1904).

Mr Harding (later Lt. Harding) was awarded the DSC in the NY Honours list in January 1946 for action aboard HMS Queen Elizabeth.

I know she served in Sabang in 1944 and Burma from '44 to '45 but I have not been able to find any information about the specific action or his part in it.

He was also Mentioned in Despatches in July 1941 whilst serving aboard HMS Newcastle but apart from mentions in the Gazette supplements I cant seem to find any additional info.

Can anyone kindly assist me in locating his citations or point me in the right direction?

Thank you
