Would anyone have, or know where I could look, a whole crew official photo taken during the above period? I'm looking in particular for a shot of them all in tropical rig arranged around the gun turrets. Possibly taken in Malta. Cheers.
Thanks Steven. The bod I'm looking for didn't join the QE until 1929 so won't be on these pics you've kindly sent. I'm looking on behalf of an elderly friend who's father was a CPO torpedo expert. He had three enlarged prints hanging in his hallway that 'disappeared' during the house clearance, I'm trying to find a copy of one in particular.
Hi again Steven, I've just had a meet with my friend who brought along various photos of his dad, one being a group of 20-30 sailors and marines on the QE in Malta 1927-29 (I got the dates wrong earlier). This group named themselves 'The Somerset Lads', who of course all came from Somerset. So our sailor of interest would have been on the QE from Sep 1927 to Sep 1929 and probably features somewhere in the first photo you sent. Thanks again.
