For many years we have sought and been unable to find details regarding the Skipper of H.M.S. Scarab.

Until now.

 

After correspondence with Lt. Cameron’s niece Sarah Cameron and a very thorough research effort by MICHAEL WYND

 Researcher, National Museum of the Royal New Zealand Navy, we can present the following

 

 

 

1.  Far East and the Mediterranean.

 

 

2.  Background Events and Return to New Zealand

 

 

3. The Letters

 

 

4.  The Evidence – Survivors’ Accounts

I thank you and everyone involved in taking the time and effort in researching,

writing and documenting the story of my uncle Ewan.

I enjoyed every part of his story and although some things were hard to read

regarding the events leading up to Ewan's death, knowing the

extreme circumstances of what occurred and the distress that it caused my

Great Grandparents is a hard one to think about and comprehend.

I thank you all again from the bottom of my heart for all that you have done to

make sure my uncle Ewan's story was told

and that he was and will be recognised for the great man that he was.
