Sid Graham. A forgotten Bajan WWII hero (1920 – 2017) — 5 Comments

  1. I received this from Barbara Willson-Graham on the 30 April 2017. We extend our sympathy to all of Sid’s family.

    It is with deep sadness to inform you that Sidney passed away on Saturday morning. He had been battling a chest infection and sadly succumbed to pneumonia, he passed away peacefully in his sleep. I would like to thank you again for all the information you have provided me. My Grandad enjoyed looking at the photographs.

    with Kindest Regards


  2. Hello to Sidney Graham and his family, I have come across this article whilst doing some research into the sinking of the Scottish Star in Feb 1942. Although I’m not able to help with regard sid’s family in Barbados, I can say my father was one of the fifteen other seamen in the lifeboat with Sidney that eventually made it to Barbados following the sinking of the Scottish Star. My fathers name was Arthur Frederick Walker who sadly passed away in December 1979. I have visited Barbados 3 times in recent years, it is not only a beautiful place but a place that holds special memories for me. I have some photo’s of my father and various other people taken whilst they were on Barbados, contact me via the website and I can maybe upload anything of importance.

    • Thank you so much, I have seen the newspaper article and wow! was your father in the photograph? I would like to point him out to my Grandad. This is an amazing story and thanks to BajanThings and some amazing people I have found out some fascinating things.
      Kind regards Barbara Willson Graham

  3. Hello, Thank you for this report. Sidney Graham is my Grandad and still lives in Custom House with is wife. We are desperate to trace Sidney’s family in Barbados and only know that his grandfather was called Thomas. Thank you again for the article.
