From the Commonwealth War Graves Commission:

ALLEN, Stoker 2nd Class, JOSEPH FREEMAN,D/KX 120899.
H.M.S. Neptune. Royal Navy. 19th December 1941. Age 26.
Son of Robert Ramsay Allen and of Edith Allen (nee Porter), of Newcastle-on-Tyne
Panel 53, Column 3. (Plymouth Naval Memorial)

Joseph's great niece, Anne Wright from Newcastle, wrote a message on the FORUM page to say "Joseph was my granddad's brother and my mum remembers hearing how my grandma fainted in the butcher's shop when news of the loss of Neptune was announced on the radio." This must have been the infamous broadcast by Lord Haw Haw. Anne could not provide a photo.
