That is brilliant, thank you, i will PM you now. I have been searching for anything on my grandfather for years but other than the photos and basic information we already have I've been at a loss.

Thanks so much KG...I couldn't really make much sense of what I read online about it so that clarifies it for me  ;D
I have 14 of these photos, some are groups and about three are individual shots, any idea how I can find out who was there at the given dates as I'm sure there are families who would like copies.

My grandfather was stationed at the training camp "HMS Victory from October 1940-December 1940. I would love to find any photos that may have been taken at the camp during that period. Very interesting to see the ones of the group of sailors posted from 1941! Would these be official photos, and if so, would anyone know where I could find them? Many thanks! :)

Hi Elicia and welcome to RootsChat, the photos that I posted were personal ones belonging to my Father. Not sure where you would find photos covering the dates that you mentioned.
