US personnel killed on a British Ship - HMLST 418
Dear Fellow Researchers
I am currently researching the war service of my great uncle Able Seaman Victor Leonard Foster, who was killed aboard the American built, Royal Navy Landing Ship (Tank) HMLST 418. The ship was sunk near Ponza Island on the 16th February 1944, by torpedoes fired from the German submarine U-230. I have discovered the names of the British servicemen who were lost aboard the ship, but I have yet to find out if it is possible to discover the names of the US servicemen who died aboard the LST. Does anyone know how I can find out the names of those who perished? Are there any books or lists available in the USA?
Yours Most Sincerely
