Hong Kong 1951
I'm hoping someone can advise. I am a volunteer for Marie Curie in Fife, Scotland and one of of my clients (my apologies, I'm unable to mention his name) often talks about a time when he was doing his National Service in the Far East and he travelled from Singapore on a British Navy Aircraft Carrier that was to be decommissioned in Hong Kong; this occurred in 1951 and he says he was onboard for approx 1 week to 10 days. He was one of a number of Gunnery Technicians in the British Army who were travelling to Hong Kong to teach military personnel that were to subsequently travel onto the Korean conflict.
Please advise if you are able to provide any details of the British Navy vessel and if there are any photographs of that period.
Many thanks for any help you might able to provide.
