Hi all

My uncle was serving aboard this vessel and was lost on 14/8/1944. John Shields.

Memories I have from family are that she was lost in the Bay of Biscay. I have rcently found through some great sites and this forum that she was actually lost near Harland Point on a Convoy EBC-72.

Looks like our story got mixed up and the U-Boat U-667 that sunk her was lost in the Bay of Biscay.

He served in the Italy campaign and I have an Italy Star medal for him. I would like to find out more about his time in the Navy aboard 99 Where can I find out the operations, flotillas and convoys that he served on?

If anyone has a photograph of 99 would it be possible to send me a copy, the family are digging through attics trying to find some for me.

Best Regards
Alex Shields
