I have just received the detailed Record of Service Manifest from the RN for my father Bert Lapthorne POMM (Deceased). It confirms he was attached to the 3rd ML Flotilla in the Med from Feb 1944 to March 1946. I am aware of some of his ML postings from his general service history but all the above are news to me. Is there any further info / pictures for any of the above boats to see? It confirms he was with John Barfield minesweeping in the Gulf of Genoa and that he was based at Ischia, Maddalena, Leghorn and various parts of Malta. There is also reference to San Stefani - could be San Stefano? Any clues?
