1st post - help/guidance needed

#1
Hello,

I'm Mark Jones from Northern Ireland. I'm not sure if i'm on the right type of forum or not but i need some guidance on researching three relatives who served with the royal navy. Two served during the 2nd world war...one died during a Naval exercise at HMS Drake in 1950...this is my own grandad's brother & i have most of his details i.e. service number, date of birth, rank, etc. The second is my granny's brother & i only have his d.o.b. The third served post war and again all i have is his d.o.b. All three men are dead now.

If any more details are required, just let me know.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Mark

Mark we do not tend to use names on this open forum

But if you send
View Profile: soleil - Navy Net - Navy and Marine Community

A personal message see can give you links to some forms that can be sent into the right naval departments with your question.

Hope this helps
