Arabis,

Thank you very much :) A bit more to work with on Ancestry now and give my NA sleuth a bit more info too. Had a quick look in "Swept Channels" and St Cyr gets a mention for North Russia. Any more info or perhaps a picture gratefully received ;)

Once again many thanks,

Donny

Microfilm copies of his RNR cards are in BT 377/7 at Kew, originals at the FAA Museum. Medals in the officers' medal roll in ADM 171. Your NA slueth should also investigate his Mercantile Marine career for you.
