Good morning

I am reaching out to see if I can make contact with any men or relatives/friends of those who served on MGB 661 from November 1942 to March 1946. My grandad who turns 95 this year would love to hear from some of his ex comrades or their relatives/friends. Likewise he would appreciate any recommendations of literature mentioning his boat.

Many thanks and look forward to hearing from you.

Dear Katy
Thank you for your enquiry. I am the Secretary of the London Branch of the Coastal Forces Veterans Association. I do not know whether any of our members know your grandfather or MGB 661, but I can ask at our next meeting in October. As we are the only Branch still meeting, we would love to contact your grandfather, if he can get to London he would be most welcome to join us on HMS Belfast. Otherwise, we keep in touch with members (all over the country) by e-mail, newsletter etc. If you could contact me on we could arrange something.
Kind regards

David Carter

Good Morning Katy
It is a pleasure to reply to your post re the adventures of your Granddad. I would think that my memories will be of those that he has . I served aboard MGB 647 during the (Yugoslavia) Island campaign of 1943/45and their must have been times when our boats operated together. An action that I am sure he will recall when our 2 boats captured the Schooner Libecchio and escorted the capture into Komiza
in April 1944 .
I attaché some photo's that I am sure will be of interest to him
For me 2nd row 3rd in from left
Cheers and Thanks Peter
