Comment: I would like to advise your association that Carl Wight Patterson (artificer) a crew member of HMS Jupiter during WW II died in his sleep at home on December 15th, 2013 in Durban, South Africa at age 92.  He was born on January 21st, 1921 in Hawick, Scotland.  He was on board when it was sunk in 1942 and survived as a Japanese POW.

He is survived by his three sons, Alan, Brian and Stuart.  I suspect that hewas one of the last surviving members of the crew.

A message of condolence was sent from the Secretary on behalf of the Association.
