My father was Joseph Pellington who served on 751, I know very little about what he got up as he died when I was a child. I have a citation about his MID and a white ensign that my uncles told me came off his ship?! I am pretty sure he served on two MTB's - if anyone can fill in some blanks I would be very grateful.
Thanks

Nick,
There is an entry in the awards database relating to your father. If you don't already have it, you could apply for his service record which may fill in some blanks for you.
