A Sailor Setting Son.
When this blog started we would sometimes post obituaries of interesting British warriors who served the King (and later Queen's) far flung but eventually fading 20th Century Empire and Commonwealth, under the title "Setting Sons." Capt North Dalrymple-Hamilton is a worthy addition, having seen the Bismark sink after coming under its guns (along with his father), joining his father again upon D-Day, marrying a Governor of the Raj's daughter and relearning to walk in his 50's after a helicopter accident. I revivie it with this fellow: and again Hopefully one of those took. A father son team at the sinking of the Bismark is an interesting angle. Capt North Dalrymple-Hamilton was so British he has one of those hyphen names the British upper crust had even before feminism.
