HMS Victorious - 1960s

One for Scouse hopefully.

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

Gentlemen,

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)

It's been posted on the HMS Victorious Association website, but so far no takers. Over to you lot.

James

I got a crash draft from Arbroath to the Vic as his replacement although I didn’t know that was the reason until I got on board. I had never met him in previous service, but he seemed to have been popular with the lads. My condolences and respect to his family. It was a long time ago but still remembered by me.
