Hi there,

I think one of these soldiers may be my grandfather, his records indicate he was on the HMAS Victory in 1941, and bears a striking resemblance to one of the men in this picture.
I was wondering if you had a list of names?

Thank you in advance for any help!

I do have other photos of the crew taken at the same time and he may be on one them too.

I think he might be the gentleman in the back row without the white on his collar, but again I'm not 100% sure.

Thank you for your help Carol, I really appreciate it.

and the other one. Hope they are of your Grandfather...show them to relatives and if you think they are of him I can arrange to let you have bigger files which will help with identification.

I have a picture of my father returning from Australia on HMS Victory but not sure when this was.

It would be later than 27/Sept/1944. HMS NABBERLEY at Ludham/Bankstown near Sydney NSW was not formed until then. Perhaps a Google search using the correct spelling would shed more light.
 I would agree that the vessel in the photograph was likely a US built Victory ship but which one? A lot of these vessel were built post war. For a list of British Merchant vessels with names ending with the word Victory try a search here.

Some can be discounted as being too small or built in the late 1940's. If you can narrow them down to possibles then you can get hold of the ships movement card (movements up until 1946) available online from The National Archive. Series BT389.
If these cards do not have the information you are looking for the the ships logbook also available from TNA will have details of the ships movements.
