Comments: looking for personal recollections of my father photos etc. He died nov 2007. he made much of his naval service although he was subsequently invalided out with pleurisy which left him with chest problems the rest of his days. one story was of the shore battery attack which left one of his mates dead after the shell had exploded on the turret this had of course shocked him and i can remember his nightmares as a small child. i would appreciate any info as my knowledge is sketchy of this portion of his life
cheers for any assistance

Comments: I am trying to find some history on my Father Tony Divers from Glasgow, I believe he served on HMS Jamiaca for a time until she was decommissioned.
I know he was at Suez and talked about Atlantic convoys but never mentioned any action. I am looking for any photos/ history as all of ours have been destoyed.
Thanks Tony

I am not sure how these things work I am only 18 years old looking to suprise my grandad with a story of an old friend and the possibility of an adress so he can write to them as a gift for his birthday.
