In memory of
Ensign John Charles England
Ensign John Charles England perished aboard the USS Oklahoma on the morning of December 7, 1941 at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Ensign England had been buried in an unknown's grave in Punchbowl National Cemetery in Hawaii. He was recently identified and will be buried with Navy Honors next to his parents Sam and Thelma England in Evergreen Cemetery. Ensign England was born on December 11, 1920 in Harris, Missouri. His family then moved to Alhambra, California. He enlisted in the United States Naval Reserve as an Apprentice Seaman on September 6, 1940. After active duty training on board the USS New York, he attended Naval Reserve Midshipman's School, New York, N.Y. and was appointed Midshipman, USNR, March 6, 1941. He completed his training on June 5 and was commissioned Ensign, USNR, June 6, 1941.

He returned three times to the radio room, each time guiding a man to safety. He left to go back below deck for the fourth time and was never seen again. Ensign England's gallant effort saved three men, but cost him his life.
