Can anyone please tell me if the HMS Victory was a training ship please. Attached is a crew photo taken in 1940. My Father's papers show that he was listed from (Amended) 3rd January -15th February 1940. or He is the man far right on the back row looking rather dopey  ::) ;D ;D
Thanks for your help.
Carol

Added: My Brother has finally let me see the Service Record and the year was actually 1940 and not 1941 he was also there from 6th November 1941 to 27th April 1942

Sorry for the confusing but the dates quoted were from the written notes that I was given.

Hi everyone I'm completely new to this but I'm looking for any information on Gordon Archdale Jones who was on Victory 1 during World War 2. He was aboard March 1932 and October 1940. Any pics or info gratefully received.  I have just been given his record of all the ships he served during both wars and wish to find out more

Hi do you have any photo or information of Gordon archdale Jones who was on Victory march 1932 and October 1940?  I've just found out info on my paternal grandfather and his navy records lists the ships he was on including victory.  If there exists a photo of him I would be thrilled to see it

During WW2, HMS Victory wasn't a ship, but a shore establishment - aka a Stone Frigate.

Due to RN Regulations, all shore bases are given an HMS designation ;D

Hi Vixen and welcome to Rootschat, Sorry for the late reply but I have been away. None of the people in the photos I have are named unfortunately.

My father's service record has Victory listed as his second last posting, from April to June 1946. Am I right in assuming that this was a shore establishment, not a ship? If so, where was it located? He had come from a shore establishment (St Angelo) in Malta. Thanks

Hi Gillian and welcome to Rootschat, Yes, it was a training ship at the time, the photos that I posted were taken at the one in Portsmouth, I think there were other bases too.

I've just come across this thread while looking for some info and wondered if anyone on here might be able to help.

I'm A Commonwealth War Graves Commision (CWGC) Eyes On Hands On Volunteer. One of the graves I am tasked to look after is that of an Able Seaman John Beresford Wileman who died at HMS Victory on 22/06/1947.

I have found from another site that he died from some sort of illness but wondered if anyone had more information or even a photograph as there seem to be quite a few photographs on the thread.

Thanks in Advance
