Thumbs up Re: HMS Ulster Queen

Thanks Bill. I have quite a few images of UQ but these are slightly different so thanks for sharing.

Any information about Billy Mann - connections to his family, etc. definitely welcomed - and any information about other Ulster men that I could connect to the ship would be a bonus!
My father, Singleton T P Wilson served on the Ulster Queen and was from Belfast.
He was Sub Lt. RNVR. I recently discovered his Mess Bill from March 1943 and a Naval Message ordering his relief by a E.G. McKay on the 8/11/1943.
My father always told me of his "adventures" on the arctic convoys and had photographs of the Ulster Queen, but have I been unable to find evidence of his service untill I found these papers.
I would be obliged if you or anyone else could advise me as to how I could claim his Arctic convoy medal and beret.
Regards, Maurice Wilson.

Hello again Maurice - I do not know if you can get the beret, however you can apply for his Arctic Star (posthumously). I have attached the Application Form for this. Try to fill in as much information as you can as this will expedite the processing of the award. Good Luck! Let us know how you get on.
Regards,
Leona
