    Default Hello from Manchester

    Hi

    I look forward to participating in the site and getting advice to research my late grandfatherís life.

    He died when I was young and didnít really know him, and all I really remember was that he watched a lot of snooker and horse racing. Which is boring as I was a toddler!

    He served in the Merchant Navy during WW2 for the ĎMinistry of Warí? I have found some info, but hopefully people here can provide some leads to follow when Iíve got around to a separate post.

    I was pleased to find a British Legion Merchant Navy poppy badge to buy last year and wear alongside a traditional paper poppy. No one in work really understood the Merchant Navy role properly in the wars so it has been good for me to be able to raise awareness.

    In terms of me - by trade Iím a road collision investigation engineer by so I work a lot with the police. Although working up the ladder in the public sector means Iím more of an Ďoffice wallahí now!

    Thanks

    Nadeem.

    Nadeem, may I suggest that if you have any info regarding your GF, such as maybe a discharge book or other info you post it on site.
    With that there are some who will be able to point you in the right direction to hopefully find more about your GF.
    Happy daze John in Oz.
