MESSAGES

CPO ALFRED DRAGE..  My father, CPO Alfred Drage was the Buffer on the Ambuscade during the latter part of World War 2.  In 1944 (I think it was about then!), the ship was in Govan Shipyard for repairs and I was invited aboard for the day.  The ship was moved to another berth on the Clyde, and I was allowed to remain on the bridge.  Being only 14 years old, this was a very exciting experience.  I still have a wooden carving of the ship's crest, which was carved for him by a member of the crew.  Sadly, my father died in 1969, at the age of 69yrs.  When I was born he was an A.B. on the destroyer HMS Anthony, hence my Christian name.   Contact here 

LESLIE MUSHINS.. My father joined Ambuscade as an Ordinary Seaman on 19th Feb 1941 and left as an AB on 30th April 1942. I would be interested if anyone could provide any information concerning Ambuscade during the dates my father was aboard. Contact me at Mushins@aol.com
