HMS Victorious - 1960s


Lantern Swinger
One for Scouse hopefully.

One of the fora that i administer has had a request from a member looking for info about his uncle.


my name is Craig and I am trying to find out anything about my uncle who served and died on the 'Vic'. His name was Tommy Craig and he served in the early sixties. I know that he went to Hong Kong as he brought me back a silk dressing gown. Sadly he died in an accident on board when a plane was catapulted off. If any of you gents can give me any information on my uncle I would appreciate it.

Thanks...........................Craig (ex-pongo)
