Hello all! Newbie here just making an introduction and start asking questions. I have a deep rooted interest in the RN and associated services, sadly I've missed out on a career in the senior service on medical grounds but I've since dedicated a lot of time to collecting, documenting and displaying Royal Navy kit and equipment up and down the country, primarily from the Second World War and earlier but now moving into the Cold War period. If anyone has old bits of uniform or similar they're looking to get rid of please drop me a line! Anyway, on to my question and the main purpose of starting this thread, I was directed to this forum from the World Naval Ships Forum as it was suggested there were several ex Royal Naval Auxiliary Service Auxiliarymen who might be willing to share some anecdotes as I'm trying to learn more about the service. I'm also interested in the previous organisations of the RN Mine Watching Service and Admiralty Ferry Crew Association for which I've been able to find little information so far. Look forward to hearing from people.
