Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I'm trying to find somebody who may know or remember something about my grandfather. Unfortunately we never met and I know very little about him apart from this:
    His name was Simon Shaw
    He was a submariner.
    He served on the HMS Olympus in the 60s.
    His family lived on the Isle of Wight.
    He died in about 2000.

    I know it's a long shot but I thought it might be worth a try.
    I've already tried several ex navy sites and forces re-united and failed to find anything.
  2. Oh just remembered something else; he collected Jags and played in a Jazz band from time to time.
  3. hi little one try http://www.submarinersassociation.co.uk/
    there are several branches go to links and post your request. best of luck.
    i think the olympus was a pompey based boat, but can't be sure
  4. cheers stew, haven't come across that one yet so I'll give it ago. I'm pretty sure it was pompey based too, they lived in Gosport and my father remembers being taken on it to have a look once.
  5. Olympus (O Class - SM1) was Dolphin based during the 60s, I used to do Stores accounting for her and others based there (63/64 & 66/69).
    Regret I can't help with your search, I'm none too good with names these days.
    Good Luck with your search.

  6. Yep that would've been around right time I think. No worries Mouse, cheers anyway. I'm gradually piecing bits of information about him together, its just going to take a while.
