crossing the line certificate and operation hurricane

lotty

Newbie
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.

Thank you for everyones help, especially Shunter, i am now framing it up, and i will even do him a fathers day mug.
How great are the internets!
 
I know it's a little late but is there any chance you could send me a copy also. My grandfather served on Campania as a part of Op. Hurricane. Sadly he died in 1967. My email address is [email protected] many thanks
