[A] - 'HMS Ruby' was a hired trawler / minesweeper. She was torpedoed and sunk by UC 79 off N W France. 18 seamen lost including Fred Cundy.
[B]- Initially I thought F. H. Jones was from HMS Mutine (with an 'e') which was an Algerine Class Minesweeper of the Royal Navy launched 1943. Therefore the date on the headstone is too early. There is another war grave in Dorset to Ordinary Seaman Walter Gordon Baker, 16th October, 1942 which says "Unit HMS Mutin, Royal Navy", it does not refer to a ship, but further digging found that HMS Mutin was a small craft of the Royal Navy Patrol Service, hence the RNPS on the headstone.
[C] - HMS Warwick was torpedoed and sunk off Trevose Head, Cornwall on the 20th February, 1944 by U-Boat 413.
[D] - Of interest in the Scillonian Magazine No. 273, Summer 2011, pages 215 & 216 is a note, by Mr R Larn, concerning the mystery of a L/Cpl Percy Chappell, 1st Devon Regt. He was killed in action on the 6th November, 1917. There is a memorial to him on a family grave, plot 1162 in Old Town Churchyard.
