It is amazing seeing and reading about this historic ship.  The photographs document not only the great history
of this ship, but also they say so much about the times. This web site is wonderful, it is an example of the best of
the internet.

From Canada, Kingston to be exact. What an awesome site you have. Very nicely put together. My Grandad was from Portsmouth and often I would see a lot of treasures he had of the VICTORY around his house. I am a big
fan of her also. Very very nice. Not to mention in the process of putting a 1/100 scale model of her together and the site I am finding very useful.

Your site was great. I was able to see the USS Wasp which my Mother and Step Father were buried at sea from.

Thank you,

I am seeking information on a silver salver approx 25 cms in diameter, English hallmark for Sheffield 1955. It has the following inscription: A.J.A.N.A. Commander William J. Schlacks 4-6-53 - 5-9-56. There are a total of
22 signatures, presumably of the crew, including William C. Kruse, KV Johnson, PH Backus, D Furlong, Louis Metzger. I think this salver must have been presented to Commander Schlacks probably on his retirement or promotion, but I can find no record of either him or his ship. The salver weighs 480gms. I would be grateful for any information you could possibly give me.

Many thanks,
Alison Valiadis

I stumbled across your site while fishing around on google - excellent. Ever since my father brought me a book on WWII warships back from the library about 20 years ago I have been fascinated about the ships and the men who manned them. I have a fairly large library of illustrated books on the subject but was impressed by the amount of photographs on your site I have never seen before.

Thanks,

My grandfather, Petty Officer N G H Temple served as a stoker on H M S Jupiter in 1919 and was awarded the order of St. Stanislas. I was curious to find out what he did to deserve this. Can You help?

Thanking you in anticipation,

The ship USS Crommelin FFG-37 looks great. I used to live in Hawaii and also was in the Navy. I was stationed on the USS Leahy CG-16 and the USS Kitty HAwk CV-63 from 1992-1994. Now I am in the U.S. Maritime Industry on Government contracted ships for the Navy. I hope you all have a safe voyages anywhere you go.

Just a few words of congratulations and two thumbs up for a truly wonderful site! The photos are superb, as well as the information presented. Keep up the good work because this is one of my favourite sites. My fave four-stacker is the Aquitania, and the pictures here do not disappoint.

Subject: Other Ships?

Love the site and I visit often.  I was wondering if you were planning on adding some more historical ships, like the American Civil War ironclads, and Protected Cruisers like USS Maine and USS Olympia (both of Spanish American War fame).  Anyway- thanks for your site, it is a great reference for a naval history buff like myself.

Subject: Beautiful & informative site

Michael, have spent much time on many other nautical sites, but your work is commendable. If medals are deserved, you're 1st in line. God Bless. Found you researching Yamato, which I found searching U-Boats. Many enlightening stories about decent human behavior at war. God Bless.

Subject: Your site

Congratulations! I have only just discovered your site and cannot commend nor praise it highly enough. Seeing some of the photographs posted brought not only tears to my eyes for some sad memories but also some wonderful memories as well. My only complaint? It will cost me a fortune to purchase these wonderful
photographs. Well worth it.

What an magnificent site you have set up, I have only recently discovered it and thus only nibbled at its contents! If the Vanguard and Duke of York pages are anything to go by I have hours of pleasure in store.
I live in a fairly isolated part of Tasmania, being retired I can spend much more time reading and enjoying my interest in Royal Navy history. I might even be able to find the money for broadband and thus allow for speedier downloads of the photographs, the extraordinary clarity of which is a pleasure.

Congratulations,
David Holt

Subject: Lt. A.H. Cherry

I recently found a book on Nautical Tables at a book sale, it contained papers belonging to Lt. A.H. Cherry an American serving in the Royal Navy. He was serving on H.M.S. Evadne, a tender to Malabar. I would like to get
the book and papers to Mr. Cherry or his descendants if possible. I would appreciated any help on this matter.

I recently found your website while conducting research on a particular American who served with the British. Post number 100 in your guestbook from Gene Jones mentions this officer, and I would like to get in touch with him as I believe our interests are the same.

Sincerely,
Lt. Dave Schwind USN

I was doing some research (I work as a guide in the Australian National Maritime Museum in Sydney) and I came across your site which I find extremely interesting. One item #100 dated Nov 14 2007: Subject Lt A.H. Cherry got my attention. It was Commander Cherry's book "Yankee RN" written just after WWII which first aroused my interest in things Naval, Royal Navy in particular.

Alex H. Cherry was a Wall Street banker who broke the United States neutrality act and joined the RN and was granted a commission in the RNVR with the rank of lieutenant. He saw active service in the Battle of the Atlantic; and later with the Second Escort Group (Capt. F. J. Walker's famous group). He also served as No.1 aboard the EVADNE where he devised a new system of convoys which he named "Asdic Line Abreast" Asdic was the English equivalent to the US sonar whilst the ship was stationed in the Bahamas.

Following his time as first lieutenant of the EVADNE he was promoted to Lt. Commander and given temporary command of the destroyer HMS Riou (think that the spelling), this was before he joined the Second Escort Group as No.1 on the WREN. Later he was promoted to full Commander RNVR and awarded the OBE. Commander Cherry died aged 82 in 1987. Copies of his book "Yankee RN" which was and I imagine still is an excellent read can still be purchased from time to time on e-bay I hope this assist your contributors.
