Ritchie R. Cabin Boy (OS). SS ASHLEA From Sailors Home, Liverpool (Garden Smith Intitute, Paradise Street, Liverpool) Ritchie Brammer, Robert Ritchie's eldest grandson, believes that his grandfather was actually an RN rating, aboard the Ashlea as a gunner having joined the RN in 1938. His RN identity was hidden by describing him as a Cabin Boy so that the Germans would not find out that we were arming merchant ships and to protect his fellow crew members. He evidently subsequently had a busy war in the RN, which included serving aboard HMS Implacable under Vice Admiral Phillip Vian, who had commanded HMS Cossack when Ritchie was rescued from the Altmark.
