I have a photograph, possibly taken in Halifax circa 1942, of my first cousin, one generation removed, Able Seaman George Maxwell Penney, Royal Navy, who was serving on the minesweeper HMS Magdalen when he was hit and killed by a train north of the Jubilee Road overhead bridge around 6 a.m., Dec. 29, 1942. In the photograph, Max is standing beside a woman who cannot be identified by family members.
Any person who may have known Max during his wartime service in Halifax or who has information surrounding the circumstances of his death is requested to contact:
