Hello Carol,
Thanks so much for your quick reply. Your photos give me hope that there are more out there from other years--who knows? I will keep searching!

Hi, recently received the initial section of my Dads service record and it shows he was at HMS Victory 2 in August '41 and again in September '41. I have this photo of him (top left) but not sure when it was taken, likely later on in the war.

Hi Scot and welcome to RootsChat....my Father was there earlier in the year. Thanks for sharing your photo, others who have relatives on this training ship may just recognise their relative.

Like I said, not sure when that was taken but worth getting it out there just in case someone recognises a Father or Grandfather !
