Hi - (again) the next topic I need to understand re my fathers naval war time is, what he did within the Navy itself. Obviously I know that when he joined he would have been a 'normal' seaman (is that correct?) - he later became a Petty officer then an Officer. Eventually at some stage he became a 'Navigator' - given that this was in the war years was this training 'fast tracked' so they could get you in to the conflict asap? - does anyone know what would have been the process at that time? Also, what badges or insignias would he have had to do with being a navigator? Would that have been his only duty at this time as I understand many men had 2 or 3 duties during the war time hostilities?
