Hello, all, from Septicland. I'm here to help the son of one of your older shipmates from WW-II who is looking for items relating to his Father's service in the RN. His name was Ronald Wellings, a Sailmaker's Mate sunk on HMS Prince of Wales and rescued, then subsequently at Boom Defense, Durban SA aboard HMS Barbourne, which is approximately when this picture was taken (1943): Ronald is the young lad to the left of the screen. His son, Timothy, wrote to me having seen a picture of the RN Sailmaker's badge on my site enquiring if I had one available. Unfortunately, my picture came from a surfing expedition but I thought that someone here might be able to help him out. He's making a "memory cabinet" for his Father's service time so that future members of the family will have something concrete to refer to and so that the memory of his Da's service will not die, rather a worthy enterprise in my book. If someone can: (a) identify Ronald's mate, (b) perhaps give some information on the rather splendid-looking chappie in the headdress (I understand he was a bit of a 'local character' during that time in Durban) or, (c) be able to supply Tim with a Sailmaker's Badge (enlisted or Officer's), please write to me and I'll put you in touch with him. I figured that if anywhere on the net, here would be the place to post/ask and get a reasonable response. Fair Winds to all and thanks for reading.
