Hello members, I have recently obtained my Dad's Discharge Book from the National Archives and I want to compile a book of photos of the ships he sailed in between 1950 and 1963. I will post a list soon. I have photos of some of the ships but not all. The 1st ship he joined in 1950 as a Cabin Boy was the AYTON. I cannot find a photo of this ship. Can any members assist?
Thanks
Steve

Ayton. A real 'old timer' and with a nice radar too!
