Chelsea News 1919-1984 I am interested in making contact with any descendants or relatives of Leofric. I would like to find out if he was the Naval Officer aboard HMS Dragon in the Baltic in 1919 when my GreatGrandfather and 8 other men (and boys) were killed in action. According to the ship's log Leofric was "dangerously wounded". I'd love to find out more as the story of what happened fascinates me. Also memorial events take place every year in Riga, Latvia and an exhibition is planned. I would like any family of those who had been involved to be aware that these men have not been forgotten. Leofric's birth was registered in Chelsea.
