A Bit Of A Fraud

Hello all. I'm afraid I'm a bit of a fraud as I've only ever sailed as a passenger but am trying to research the careers of my father and grandfather who were both in the Merchant Navy for their whole working lives. It is a daunting task without a Discharge Book. I came across this site while trying to find details of ships I found from CRS10's for them at the National Archive.

antiquesam,

On behalf of the SN Moderators, a warm welcome aboard from the Isle of Anglesey.
You will thoroughly enjoy the SN experience and, since you share common interests with many of our members, you will also undoubtedly be exchanging messages before long. (Thumb)

Also on behalf of the 'SN Moderating Team', welcome aboard antiqusam.

Hopefully, someone will be able to help with your research. Even without your father and grandfathers Discharge Books a list of their ships would be a great help if you have them. Good luck.
