Many of the readers of this newspaper served at the Royal Navy Shore Training Establishment HMS Collingwood. The HMS Collingwood Association has received a request and I am hoping that one or more of your readers who served there, can help.
We have had a request to track down a Wren or her family and her service history in the following case. “I have in my possession a long service and good conduct medal, written on the side is 42359 J.M Wilson. Chief Wren H.M.S Collingwood. If you know of anyone who could help in my search of information I would be very grateful.” We hope to return the medals to her or her family. Did you serve with Chief Wren JM Wilson either when she was a Chief or at any time before?
The Association would love to hear from anybody who can help in any way at all. Write to Mike Crowe, 7 Heath Road, Lake, Sandown, Isle of Wight PO36 8PG or send details to firstname.lastname@example.org
Those wishing to join the Association are just in time for our next reunion in Widnes April 17 – 20
