Arctic Convoys

Hello All,

I am a newbie!

After a Family member created a Family tree and after various conversations I found out that my late Father sailed on the Arctic Convoys during the war. I knew he was in the Navy for 4 years from the Age of 18-22 as a stoker but have no other Information.

Has anyone any idea how I can trace what ships he sailed on?

BR

Tony Price

Hello from NZ Tony. And welcome. I can't help you personally but the depth of knowledge on this site I am sure will get you some answers. Any details you can reveal would help.
Good luck.

Hello Tony and welcome,
You need to apply for his service records in the first instance here:
https://www.gov.uk/get-copy-military...-elses-records - It will cost £30. After you obtain them you may wish to come back with any questions.

Regards
Hugh
