YourLetters: Death knell.

Byline: Bill Roberts, Crosby

I READ that some ex Matelots are making efforts to bring the ship's bell of the battleship, HMS Prince of Wales to Liverpool. The best of luck to them.

She has a place in the great maritime history of this country that should never be allowed to be forgotten.

I just hope as an ex matelot myself, that, if they are successful, it is not given to the Merseyside Maritime Museum.

All the artefacts of our navies, especially the Merchant Navy are being taken and stored out of sight of the public.The Bell would most probably be melted down or at best stored in some cellar.

Please shipmates, leave the bell in Portsmouth where it is safe and guarenteed to be on view to all.
