crossing the line certificate and operation hurricane

#1
Hello, can anyone out there please help?!
My dad was on board HMS Campania d48 and was part of Operation Hurricane in 1952. (only a small part-he watched).
I know he had several certificates that my gran had on her wall, but they have since been misplaced.
Please could anyone tell me if i can get copies.
He had a crossing the line certificate and a big document with a picture of the atomic mushroom cloud on it too ( i think it was signed by the king).
The crossing the line certificate is quite specific as ive seen some and they arnt the same as the one i remember.
Thank you for your help.

Most crossing-the-line certificates that I've received were locally manufactured on the ship, so getting a copy might be quite difficult.

Ohh! I so want to get him a replacement!
Is there not anyone outthere who was on the same ship or anything.
(i am a daddy's girl, and so i am used to getting my way!)
I really know hed love this, instead of the usual chocs and t-shirts he gets for his birthday.
