Robert Stack, nephew of Partridge sailor Edward Stack, wrote to identify his uncle in this photo.


From Robert:

“I believe the seaman on the left is my uncle Edward Stack of Hartford
CT. He was a twin with my father John F. Stack and a Hartford cop before
enlisting in the Navy. He was killed in the E-boat attack on the USS
Partridge…My uncle was a Machinist Mate, so maybe he was killed/trapped below

Thanks for the note Robert.  I’ll make a change in the photo to include your uncle’s name. It’s good to know that people are searching for and adding to this important piece of history.  If you have any information you’d like to share, comment here and email
