Looking for info on where ships went to???

Hello, I am new to this so please bear with me but I am trying to find out where my later Father sailed while he was in the Navy. I have his records, the names of the ships and the dates he was on them, but I'd like to know exactly where he went, but due to confidentiality I am unable to find this out. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Raleigh, Drake, Dolphin, Excellent and Victory are shore establishments so you can rule those out.

A number of them here with dates
 
Hello & welcome to RR @Lindsay Hill

I don't know how familiar you might be with the RN's ranks/ratings/branches but if need to know more just chalk the initials up here and one of us might be able to explain out what those initials represent during your late father's career.

By the way, if his surname is the same as yours (Hill) he probably gained the nickname of 'Pusser' Hill.

No connection with his trade, just a nickname often applied to all Hills in the RN.
 
Thank you, I know very little! My Dad always talked about the places he went to, and I wanted to put together a map of his travels and tick off as many as I can. The nickname would suit him as he loved a pussers, I always have a bottle in!

On a historical note HMS CONSORT got a bit banged up back in 1949 when she was
fired upon by Chinese Communist Forces.
