Hello Retr,
Well spotted. Sorry I do not have any additional information. My father died in 2002 and as I have said previously it was his medals record that tied him to the photos. Good Luck with the photo enhancement.

Regards

Colin

I am searching for info on the service of my dad Bill Wright who served as a stoker on MTB670.Thinking about the actions he and his shipmates may have been involved in at such a young age led me to wonder if there was a process of selection in order to be assigned to Motor Torpedo Boats during WW2.ie volunteer or go were your sent.

Guy on right resembles my dad, able seaman Joe Vaughan but if he has glasses on my dad did'nt wear them. He was on mtb 670. And 638 in Adriatic he was a pom pom gunner. Not certain its him though.

Dad was a gunner and insignia on his right arm shows that so it must be him. He is also on page 1 of this post on 670 with crew at back of boat he is 3rd from right with white cap tilted back. Is your dad there too!?
