You seem to be a full bottle so I am hooking into this thread.
H.M.A.T. J 17 - I understand was a Halcyon Class Minesweeper and was built in 1937.It was called "SPEEDY"
Now,my father sailed on her to Australia in a pretty big Convoy from UK in January 1941,I think originally about 20 ships in Convoy WW 2. Do you know anthing about her and in particular the voyage to Australia in Feb 1941.
I do not know who Commanding Officer was at this time,but I do know my father was CO of draft of Non - effectives onboard bound for Australia.
Are you aware of any historical info or crew,passenger/prisoner details or where I may find them ?
Maybe you are more into the technical side of things !
Any advice appreciated.</HTML>
