Hi there everyone

Just dropped in to see if anyone can give me any information on the Tank Landing Ship 'Sir Frederick Clover'. Or where I might be able to obtain any photograhps of her.
I went up to Korea in her from Hong Kong to Inchon, horrible journey, caught the edge of a typhoon. We returned in a flat calm sea.
Any info wopuld be very much appreciated
Cheers and beers
Bill
