I was so sad to learn that your Father has died. It was very kind of you to let us know through MaritimeQuest. Old Age makes it difficult for me to remember people from years past, but I know your Father was in HMS AMETHYST when she came under fire in the Yangtze in 1949. And I am sure he was onboard for our memorable return to the United Kingdom in the Autumn of that year. He was a Member of the AMETHYST Association for many years. I am sure all Members of our Association will join me in sending you our sincere Sympathy in your great loss.

It is with Great Sadness that we learn that Robert Gibson has died. Robert served on board HMS AMETHYST as a Stoker Mechanic in April 1949 during the Yangtze Incident. He was a member of the AMETHYST Association.
