I have heard a few stories of what they got up to on board, but the one I heard
today was when the doctor on board removed 3 of dad's teeth after hypnotising
him!
Please get in touch if you remember dad, he is 81 now, still going strong!

Comments: Does anyone remember my dad, R.M. Peter Horton who served on the
Belfast in Korea from 1950 - 52? He has some naval medals for boxing
and diving and I recall him talking about the R and R trips to Japan, amongst
other things! He was aged 22 - 25 or 26 when in Korea and sadly passed
away in 1994. He attended several happy reunions on the Belfast during
the 80's and I would love to contact anyone who served with him as I miss
him terribly. Many thanks.

Told us he was on guns and had something to do with ships entertainment but I cannot remember if the entertainment was on the Belfast. We scattered his ashes from her when he died because he was proud to have served on her.

Comments: My Dad - Frank Petrie from Bathgate, Scotland - served on the Belfast during the Korean conflict. He was a Stoker and may have been a Petty Officer during his tour or made that rank on leaving (not sure). Currently I am working on a scrapbook on the trip that my husband and I just made to Britain (where I'm also from)where we saw the Belfast, etc and would love to incorporate any photos anyone may have into the book. For some reason I have none and don't think Dad has either, so would truly love to add any to my scrapbook. Dad is also alive and well and living in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada so I'm sure would love me to pass on any messages from crew mates.
