MESSAGES

HMS DIANA...  My dad served on HMS Diana in the early to mid fifties. This is to let any ship mates who remember him that he passed away on the 2nd of January 2004. I am writing a small biography on him for my family history (genealogy)  research and so any and all contributions would be most welcome.  Bob   contact here

HMS DIAMOND:   I can remember going aboard HMS Diamond in the late 1950's as a guest ,along with staff of the Anglo American Corporation of South Africa. I believe she had been adopted by the Debeers Diamond group. The crew waited on us with afternoon tea. Over the years I have lost photos of this day, and wondered if any crew members have any record or photos of this event. please contact Joyce Snipp at joycesnipp@hotmail.com 

HMS DEFENDER.. IAN MacKENZIE.. I served on Defender n 1963/64 as a boy seaman from HMS St Vincent. I recall her as being an old refitted but tough little ship and it was with pride that I served on her. I would love to obtain a picture of her and if anyone can help I would be most appreciative. Contact me at dimackenzie@shaw.ca
