A postcard I sent to my parents a day or two after arrival in Aden My Dad (on the left) with a couple of mates in Taranto, Dec 1943 Next war; Dad on HMS Skye during the Korean War. Presumably coaling ship. HMS Skye was a coal fired trawler converted to a minesweeper. Dad with an obviously proud father outside their life-long home

Dad in Alexandria; could that be Army KD he is wearing?? It seems Dad was enjoying his war more than his Bootneck mate! War's end and Dad is back home with his Mum & Dad and bride to be. (My Mum) My lad in his best kit
