Hi folks, I've recently been sorting through some of my late father's personal effects and came across his Service records. I knew that he was in the RN before marrying my mum but I realise that even though he spoke a lot about how much he enjoyed navy life, I never asked anything about the finer details. I know that he was a Ship's Writer and started at HMS Sea Eagle as a 17year old before being transferred to HMS Terror where he became ill and was eventually given a medical discharge on his return to UK. He served for approx 4 years from 1955 to 1958. His name was Danny Hickey and I would love to know if any of the veterans on here served with him. I'm also curious to know if he would have spent time at sea and in what type of vessel. My mother seems to think he sailed in torpedo boats during his training but doesn't know any more than that. Can anyone help? Regards, Paul Hickey
Hi, I'm trying to upload Eagle photos circa 1955 but my photos won't upload,fail to upload for some reason. Kind regards.
Hi Michael and Dominic, sorry if I'm being s bit dense but the links seem to take me to a list of ex service personnel. I'm not sure what I need to do to progress my query. Cheers, Paul
