HMS Traveller

This is a photograph of my Great Uncle ` Wilfred Harry Hooton` who served on the submarine` H.M.S Traveller` when she was sunk on the 12th December 1942. Unfortunately it seems these days that the tremendous sacrifice that was made by people like my Great Uncle is being forgotten, I for one will not forget so any information you may have about H.M.S Traveller would be greatly appreciated.
