Default Drafting In, Bruce D

Hi there,

I spent 21 years in the RAN, joining HMAS Nirimba as a apprentice. then served on ships such as HMAS Duchess, HMAS Stalwart, HMAS Vampire, HMAS Adelaide, HMAS Sydney and HMAS Melbourne, as well as the shore bases such as HMAS Nirimba, HMAS Kuttabul, HMAS Stirling, HMAS Waratah, HMAS Platypus and HMAS Cairns.

I have recently recieved a hugh collection of photos taken between 1939 to 1958 of Ships both Naval and Merchant taken by my Father in that period while he served in Royal Navy, the Royal Australian Navy and Merchant Navy (Shaw Savill and Adelaide Steamship Companies). he saw service in Q-ships, Destroyers, Altantic Convoys and Aircraft Carriers during WWII

I'm Located in Melbourne Australia
