    That's incredible, thanks!

    Does anyone know what badges and uniform my dad is wearing in these photos? Intensely curious to hear what people think.

    2nd one looks like a Deck Officer Uniform Summer Issue ,which one is your Dad in the Thirs Pic ? Is he the one with the Shoulder Stripe?
    Cheers

    The 1st Pic and just a guess but may help to solve it,looks like a Fisherman with a Forty Niner Hat and an Oar ,so it could possibly be in a place like Denmark or somewhere there abouts ???
    Will keep searching and see what comes up.

    Lets make this s sort of Quiz Lads so come on get your Thinking caps on and try and solve this (All three Pics that is)
    Cheers

    3rd image: The lifeboat name begins with 'Gl' - possibly your SS GLENSTRAE ?

    Ist image: Scandinavian architecture? Your dad looks to be a fine man.

    Dad is the one with the leg cast on.

    I'm fascinated about the cap badge although it's quite blurry.

    I didn't even think about the "Gl" on the side of the lifeboat - it is frustrating!

    It could be Glengarry, Glenstrae or any one of the Glen Line vessels....or maybe even none at all! Dear me.

    Thank you, Harry - he was some man alright - loved his football, was very funny as well.

    Possibly then the Officer Cap Badge could be that of Glen Line ??

    The search continues!
