HDML 1395

Postby paintedblack » Mon Oct 21, 2013 4:13 pm

Looking for information on this craft as my grandfather served on this in the engine room,
I was told he was on a MTB but the pics I have are a HDML. He might have served on more than one vessel.
He was in Italy, Belfast and Portsmouth from what I remember.
Update he was at HMS Europa, and St Angelo
