I am the nephew of Gunner Ernest Keegan who was in the Royal Navy, and i am led to believe he was in charge of the main gun.
I cannot find much or any information about him apart that he got his gun crew to safety before manning his gun again and firing at incoming aircraft,i believe for this action he was Mentioned in Dispatches and awarded Oak Leaves.
My Father,Who was a gunner in the Royal Artillery never really knew what happened to
his brother,just that he was killed in action.
After reading some of the statements on here it saddens me that it was kept quiet for so long that Mothers and Fathers passed away without knowing what happened to their children.
Also why there is no monument in the U.K for this event that seems to have passed most people by.
