Max Brind Able Seaman MEMORIAL ID 13287788 While working on my Brind line here in Australia, I came across the unfortunate death of Max Brind, son of Edward William Henry Brind and grandson of Enos Brind of Highworth, Wiltshire, England.
Max Brind tragically lost his life on the 20 Nov 1941 aboard the H.M.A.S Sydney when it was shot down by the Japanese in WW2 with no survivors.
Max Brind is my first cousin 4 times removed with the two of us sharing Enos Brind and Mary Reynolds as common ancestors.
R.I.P Max Brind (1921-1941).

There may be some interesting stories in the above. There is the obviously strangely named Lorraine, a bloke. But perhaps more interestingly there is Thomas G Brind, who appears to have been 55, a ripe old age for a squaddie even in 1945! He was in the Coldstream Guards. Then there is George A Brind who seems to have died in a plane crash in Gibraltar.

HMS Trumpeter was an interesting boat. It started out as the American ship USS Bastian, an aircraft carrier. The ship was lent to the UK for the war effort. On May 4, 1945 (about the time Frederick Brind died) it took part in Operation Judgement, an attack on the U boat depot at Kilbotn, Norway.
