    Default Ship Crew for HMLST3011

    Hi, I am researching my Grandad and know he was on the ship HMLST3011 in 1944 celebrating his 18th birthday, we have a picture of him on his birthday with shipmates, his name was John Caddick but some differences with his DOB 26th May 1924 or 1926,can anyone assist with any extra details, thanks

    Thank you for the reply, we think he was born in Liverpool, he didn't die until 1972, it's all a bit vague other than the picture of him on this ship, his marriage certificate didn't have his father's name on so not 100% sure where he got his name from, hope that helps eliminate

    That's the problem we have found nothing adds up with his name and DOB, that's the back of the photo and all that I can read is 1945 HMLST3011, all a mystery
