  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.

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

  4. Ohh! I so want to get him a replacement!
    Is there not anyone outthere who was on the same ship or anything.

    I really know hed love this, instead of the usual chocs and t-shirts he gets for his birthday.
