    I am trying to find any information regarding Thomas Llewellyn Hughes ,born Shanghai 16/1/1930.The little information I have is that he was a junior Engineer R553450.One of his last ships was the SS Hin Sang ,and the Eastern Glory both in 1955.I think they were Jardine matheson.
    Regards Bob Hughes

    Robert,
    Have you tried to obtain his CRS 10 (service record from 1941 - 1972)?

    It will be held in either the series 1 or series 2 pieces at Kew.

    Series 1

    BT 382/833 - Hughes Robert to Hughes Thomas Stanley | The National Archives

    Series 2

    BT 382/2485 - Hughes Richard to Hugill R I | The National Archives

    Held in surname block order best viewed by visit to Kew.

    Regards
    Hugh

    Thanks to both Hugh and Gulliver,what you both said was very interesting.I might try the CRS10 records and see if they help.Thomas Hughes has been very hard to find.
