Searching for 1956 field gunners

Have your say

In 1956 I was in the Royal Navy’s Devonport Field Gun Crew whose base was HMS Drake in Devonport.

Subsequently Devonport Dockyard remained the home for the Devonport Field Gun Association.

Last year the Ministry of Defence gave the Field Gun Association notice to leave and it is now based at Crownhill Fort in Plymouth, which houses a Devonport Field Gun Museum.

However, all records and photographs for the 1956 crew are missing, so I am trying to trace any field gunners from then or any other year who may have photographs or personal records or memories.

If we were able to make copies they could be included in the museum records. I would also be delighted to hear from old field gunners of any year.
