H.M.S KENYA 1949 - 1951

By frogs123
A bit of family history uncovered. I never knew which boat my Dad served on or when. I knew he was in the Navy and bought himself out early to marry my mum. Having cleared my parents house I came across these wonderful photographs. Thought you might like to see.

The last versions is of my Mum and Mum and Dad on their Wedding Day.

A lovely set of images to treasure. As an ex-matelot, the first one looks to me to be entering Grand Harbour, Malta.
