HMS CORUNNA

ADMIRAL OF THE FLEET LORD LEWIN...... My father was Terry Lewin, ultimately he became Admiral of the Fleet Lord Lewin whose last appointment was as Chief of the Defence Staff at the time of the Falklands conflict. He died in January 1999 after which I passed the major part of his "important effects" to the National Maritime Museum (where he had also acted as head of the trustees). His life has been well covered in Richard Hill's authorised biography "Lewin of Greenwich" which is still in print and a good read. Now I am collating other materials about him and would particularly like to hear from all and any former colleagues, ship's companies, national servicemen, anyone, with stories, memories and recollections about him. I am particularly interested in sea jobs (but anything is welcome) which in order from 1939 were;-  Belfast, Valliant, Ashanti, Chequers, Corunna, HMY Britannia, Urchin, Tenby, Hermes.  I am aware that unless I collect these stories now they will soon be lost so please, all of you, try to remember something!            Many thanks, Tim Lewin                                        tim.lewin@btinternet.com

HMS DUNKIRK

TERENCE PURSELL.. My father served on HMS Dunkirk years ago but I never knew when he served or much about the ship he served on. He was born on 11th January 1929 and he took his headband and harmonica everywhere with him. If anyone can tell me more about him and the ship contact me at Purselljenny@aol.com 

HMS AISNE

DEREK LEVER... I served on HMS Aisne between 1954 and 1956 as EM1 Derek Lever and would like to hear from anyone who remembers me.  contact here  

My dad served on Aisne and then HMS Zenith. I am looking for pictures of both. Contact me at john@munro7.freeserve.co.uk 

HENLEY..  I served on HMS Aisne from 12 January 1963 until 24th August 1965. I am trying to get a photo of the ship and would love to hear from anyone from the ship or anyone who has photos. Contact Mick Henley at carolhenley@totalise.co.uk 

HMS MATAPAN

RICHARD PARR-BURMAN... I was christened aboard HMS Matapan in late 1973 / early 1974.  I am the son of David Parr-Burman who was a Lieutenant (I think) at the time.  My uncle was responsible for the photos but due to snapping a few extras on his way out of Portsmouth docks, had the film confiscated by the MOD Police.  Any photos of HMS Matapan or information about her from this time greatly appreciated.  Please contact me at rapbs13@hotmail.com
