Robert Gilmour Budge Chalmers 19
The Parents of Robert G B Chalmers received a Telegram informing them of his loss, Roberts father then wrote to the Navy saying that the service number given on the telegram was incorrect so therefore the casualty could not be his son. The letter was forwarded to his commanding officer who was a survivor of the sinking of the Lord Stonehaven and was on survivors leave, the letter above which has been transcribed below was Lt John Main`s reply. It seemed when Robert received promotion from a stoker his service No was not changed.

Oct 12th 1942
Dear Mr. Chalmers

It is with deep regret that I write in answer to your letter which has been forwarded to me at Aberdeen where I am on survivors leave.
Your son lost his life at his post when the Lord Stonehaven was sunk by E boat after a four hour action on Thursday the 1st and approx. 9pm. We were attacked and at 1am and we were struck by a torpedo and our ship sank in 5secs. 18 lives were lost and 20 were saved and most of survivors were suffering from shock. I was picked up after one hour in the water . I surmise that the men I lost didn't know anything it happened so quickly and every one at their post all heroes.
Ships were sent out to see if there were and more survivors but to no avail .
Your son was a very efficient young man and in all he did was upright and clean, very willing to do anything, never shirking his duty.
In regard to his official number I can say nothing as my records are lost. The mistake must lie with HMTS Paris or Patrols Lowestoft .
I am writing to you in strict confidence as the loss of the ship has not been made official. I intended communicating with you as I requested names and particulars of my men I lost .
Please accept my sincere and heartfelt sympathy in your great loss of a gallant son.
Yours sincerely SK LT. John Main
