William (Bill) Hopkins Navy Based in Plymouth approx 197Os
« on: Wednesday 12 August 20 10:24 BST (UK) »
Hi looking for any info on my dads service in the Navy based at Plymouth roughly in 1970s. I think he was an engineer on many ships he married a woman who used to work in a cafe in Looe at the time. They had a baby (me)(Rosemary) and he left the Navy around 1975-1977.
If anyone was based on the same ships as him I would love to find out more about his time in service as he never talked about it.
Thank You

Service records after 1920 are still with the MOD
