My uncle Bob was my dad's younger brother by about 2 years.
On was do to go into submarines, the other in mine sweepers. My dad turned up late,so uncle Bob, who was due to to mine sweepers, took my dad's place.
During the Mediterranean Battle, my uncle Bob was in HM Submarine Neptune when it was depth charged. He was just over 21 years, and was buried in Alexandria with his shipmates.
I did meet him once, but I was only 7 months old, so I do not remember him.
