WWII records - royal Navy
« on: Sunday 12 November 17 18:15 GMT (UK) »
Hi

I am lucky enough to have some medals of a relative of my husband who served in PQ17, including a Russian awarded medal. I want to mount them for our daughter but am trying to trace information about his service to include with the medals - can anyone help me. I have subscribed to Forces War Records but no trace of him comes up.

Walter Bonney. Royal Navy. 20 Oct 1917 DoB. official number JX223739. Period of service 18th Sept 1940 - 23 Oct 43.

Im simply after some additional info to put in the frame with the medals.

any thoughts?

many thanks
