Biographical Information: John William Ingram, a bachelor, lived in Dale Road, New Mill, Derbyshire. Known as Jack, he was employed as a postman in peace time.

Jack had been a member of the Royal Naval Reserve before the outbreak of World War II. He was called up at the time of the Munich negotiations in 1938, but was sent home again. Following the declaration of war the following year, Jack was called for service again and remained so. He had served in a torpedoed ship before being drafted to HMS Hood. Aged 53, he was one of the oldest of those who lost their lives in Hood.
