Re: 14th ML Flotilla - ML's 591 and 855

Just been through the 13th & 14th Flotilla's book from cover to cover -quite a story all round. I also note the report by Lt. Commander Leslie regarding the loss of 591 and 905 on the Sittang but it's really unclear in parts (bad print copy). Do you know if that report is published in other Naval re...

Re: 14th ML Flotilla - ML's 591 and 855

Kevin, Here you go from my earlier email to you. Now read all your attachments from Ken Joyce in detail. It very much echoes the tale of my Father's trip, including the days leading up to D-Day where he was active as well. It could also be the case they were at St. Christopher about the same time. D...

Re: 14th ML Flotilla - ML's 591 and 855

Admin, Yes I did indeed receive your email with the Ken Joyce attachments - many thanks. I also replied to you at your 'info@' address at the time and subsequently with another enquiry - have you received them? It was me that bought the book on ebay for nearly eighty quid (rascals!), but for me it'l...

Re: 14th ML Flotilla - ML's 591 and 855

Hi Steve,

I think my dear wife found this one after your last post and yes, not cheap, but probably worth it in the long run.

Thanks for the help.

Keith

Re: 14th ML Flotilla - ML's 591 and 855

Steve, Many thanks for being in touch. I've come to this party pretty late in the day as I just got hold of the old mans Navy service record a few short weeks ago, so am playing catch-up with my research. I have a copy of The Banzai Hunters winging its way in my direction and I think I've managed to...

14th ML Flotilla - ML's 591 and 855

I'm seeking anything on the 14th Fairmile Flotilla in which my father Robert (Bob) McGregor, JX350787, from Dunblane served. He made the trip from Milford Haven to the Far East on ML 591 which was lost on the Sittang River in Burma in 1945 - https://www.burmastar.org.uk/stories/incident-on-the-sitta...
