We mostly forget our fallen Comrades not in a war capacity. There are Sailors Graves dotted all around our shorelines. And PO Stoker Robert Brissendon is one. If they are known then more often than not their details surrounding their passing are not known.
Thanks to Ex Droggy Stephen Green answering a call for details of this unlucky man we have a picture.
