Gordon Bramley joined the Royal Navy in 1939, and served on the sloop HMS Flamingo before being transferred to the corvette HMS Salvia. On the 24th December 1941 HMS Salvia was escorting convoy TA-5 from Tobruk in Libya to Alexandria in Egypt. All 106 members of the crew died when the ship was torpedoed and sunk by the German submarine U-568. Steward Bramley is commemorated on the Portsmouth Naval Memorial, Panel 58, Column 1.

Standing on Southsea Common overlooking the promenade in Portsmouth, Hampshire, is the Portsmouth Naval Memorial. It commemorates nearly 10,000 naval personnel of the First World War and almost 15,000 of the Second World War who were lost or buried at sea.
