Thanks PWUM...

Another story I read last week was about 5 US brothers and 2 close mates who.served on the same US ship in WW2 and were all killed I think the 5 brothers were Sullivan? I should check details before responding spontaneously!

There were 4 other brothers on that ship from a different family and I think only months before, they had discussed what horror tbeir family would face if the worst happened on that ship, and 2 of the brothers had requested transfers to another ship and so survived the war

A lot.of brothers would join up and serve together in the US services but the Sullivan tragedy received a lot of publicity and there were instructions to not forward requests for family to serve together but I read that it wasnt strongly followed and requests were often granted.
