Carol, 're the photograph of your dad...HMS Victory crew photo, 1941, can I have your permission to send the photo to my Aunty in Australia, as my grandfather Jim Gorst's war record indicates that he was drafted to Victory in 1939. Even though, I don't recognise him on the photo, my Aunty would be very interested in seeing this photograph. Many thanks in advance. Regards Wendy

Hi, i believe my grandfather Harold Corbett may be the gentleman in the bottom sitting row third from the right (On the full picture) but i can't be sure, if it is that is fantastic because i have been trying to find anything on him other than his birth, death and marriage.

Hi Carol, it won't let me attach the photo i'm afraid but the one with all the crew and two guys lying in front, i believe my grandfather is on the row kneeling at the front third from right. Sorry i've just realised there are two of them

Hi Carold, In the bottom right of this pic, yes, i think so. I have other photos of him in uniform and i've been flipping between this and those and there's a high chance it's him.

Oh that's great, I have a larger version of this one which I can email to you if you want to send me your email address via PM.
I have about 8 other photos so I will look through them and see if he is on any of the others.
