MTB 250 Crew

Postby ruthlawrie » Fri Nov 14, 2014 3:12 pm

This photograph of an MTB crew shows my Dad, Alex Anderson (he is at the back) and his buddies having some down time! He thinks it is Portsmouth and MTB 250. He was also on MTB 212. The photo was taken by a local newspaper photographer, and the names he can remember are Captain Mark Arnold Forster and someone with the surname Gleeson. Its a shame we didn't write all this down years ago when he could remember more. I always wanted him to write a book, he had so many stories to tell!

He trained at Fort William in 1941, and was a Leading Telegraphist and was based at Malta for some time He was mentioned in despatches for involvement in the Normandy Landings. If anyone recognised any of the others in the photographs that would be great!
