(Thumb) Ahoy there

I'm a new member and am looking for information on the Carnarvon Castle.

My Dad (who was 90 this past week!) served on her during the war and was involved in the scrap with Thor. I have found a great picture on Ships Nostalgia - posted by Dick Sloan - of the Carnarvon Castle when she was in for repairs after the battle and wondered if there were any shipmates out there that could give me some information or more pictures of her during that time.

Looking forward to lots of messages!!

Cheers

Welcome aboard, Sheila.
I'm sure the crew will be able to help with more information or directions as to where to find it.
Meanwhile explore the ship and enjoy the voyage.
