Re: HM SGB Grey Wolf & ML 246

Hello Buddy, I have been unable to learn the movements of ML 246 in Burma in the period after Operation Dracula and the end of the war. I believe that the ML went to Prome in June 1945 and I have some of the details of the surrender of the Japanese forces at Mergui in September 1945 in which the cre...

MTBs at Littlehampton, Sussex

Does anyone have any details of Coastal Forces boats being based at Littlehampton in 1942? My father spoke of being based there for a short time, in a torpedo boat I think. When I was a child we would visit the town and he would show us where they would be berthed near the mouth of the River Arun. A...

Re: Norman Tyldesley – MTB 91, ML 245 and ML 246

Was Norman Tyldesley on ML245 or 246 in 1945? The book '13th & 14th Fairmile Flotillas in Burma' tells the story of these two flotillas plus the 34th flotilla and their voyage from Pembroke Dock to Burma. It shows ML 245 in the 34th flotilla rather than the 13th. ML 245 came from the 7th ML flot...
