ML 102

Postby Northfield » Thu Nov 19, 2020 12:03 am

My father served on ML102 and I believe 107. Are there any surviving vets from this time who knew him. He lives in NWales with my mother. He was Able Seaman Robert M Hughes known as Bob. Kind regards and total Respect to all in the community

Good Morning Martin and a warm welcome to you Dad
What a great pleasure this morning to see your request. It would be correct to say we have a MTB102 that became the Flag Ship of the then Coastal Forces Veterans Association now sadly out of commission since 2005 but still maintained by Coastal Forces Veterans whom I am sure you will soon Know . Some pictures when MTB 102 was with the Lowestoft Scouts that may be of interest for your Dad
taken around 1980's . Your Dad will be pleased to learn that our President at that time was Chris Dreyer, who was at Dunkirk with MTB 102. enjoy the pictures Hope that we are able to find ML 102 among our readers

From what I can tell the photo of ML 102 appears to be an A class Fairmile, from the number, moored alongside two Dog boats.
The subsequent photos of 102 are of the early MTB. Two different ships..
