The attached photo is of my great great uncle William Muning. He was killed when the Paddle Mine Sweeper HMS Redcar was mined and sunk near Spindle Buoy, north of Gravelines, on the24th June 1917. While trying to pick up survivors, the Mine Sweeper HMS Kempton was also mined and sunk. William is buried in the Dunkirk cemetry. I would appreciate any information on William Munning, or HMS Redcar, her history etc.
