Burnley Express and News, March 28, 1942 (photo of Mr. J. Heap with the news article)
ABOARD MISSING MERCHANT SHIP
A member of the crew of the merchant ship “Pacific Reliance,” who when the vessel was torpedoed and sunk off the English coast in 1940, were saved after having been several hours in the lifeboats, Mr. Jack Heap, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. Heap, of 44, Burnley road, Harle Syke, is now reported missing following the sinking of his ship. This news was contained in a message which his parents received this week from the owners of the vessel.
Mr. Heap was last herd of some three weeks ago from New York, where his ship had called and where he had been spending some time on shore. The cablegram which his father and mother received from him then stated that he was in good health and spirits.
Mr. Heap joined the crew of the London ship “Pacific Reliance” as assistant cook in 1940, and sailed on her to America. For some weeks the ship was busy on the other side of the Atlantic. The voyage back to London was uneventful, but the ship had left London to sail round the coast to another destination when disaster occurred. After a torpedo had struck the ship the order to abandon the vessel was given immediately, and the crew got into the four lifeboats. To their great relief an R.A.F. plane flew over and guided them towards land. Later, a small coastal vessel picked them up.
Mr. Heap arrived home a few days later, and a short time afterwards he joined his second ship.

In First Fire Brigade

Death of "little Harry."
Death has removed from the town a well-known Burnley character in the person of Mr. Henry Heap, of 6, Towneley-street Harle Syke. Mr. Heap, who was about 78 years of age, was one of Burnley's old firemen, having served under the late "Kit" Slater, who was Burnley's first fire brigade superintendent when it was a voluntary brigade. Mr. Heap was perhaps better known as "Little Harry," and for a considerable time he owned a grocer's and mixed business in Finsley-gate.
