Hello Maureen
Yes the HMS Hornet Memorial Parade is on Sunday Nov 11th at 11-00 am I attach further information from Len Reynolds book Dog boats at War quoting MGB 658, It must be very interesting for you and your Family to read about your Dads movements during the War.
Later I will point out the duty's of the Radar operators role on board

Many thanks again Peter, I have sent for the book Dog Boats of War, I already have Gunboat 658.
It is a very poignant day today, remembering. My husbands father, who was nearly 60 when he was born, fought at the Somme in the Great War, it is a reminder of how much we owe to such brave men, we thank and honour you all.
Best regards
