    I'm looking for images of H.M.S. Sceptre (P215), H.M.S. Bonaventure and H.M.S. Forth (A187).

    Many, many thanks for the offer of images. Hoping someone will be able to help with the above vessels.

    Many thanks in anticipation,

    Rowan Tree :)

    Any pictures on HMS Boadicea, lost in 1944 for a mate?

    Pictures of crew members would be a real bonus!!!!!

    Thanks Tony,

    seen that.

    His father was lost on the Boadicea and his mother re-married, with no photos or memories so he is looking for some personal pictures and recollections from this ship.

    If anyone can help, that would be great.

    Hi Cally,

    Very pleased to see you back on the forum and still supplying great photos.

    Slightly confused with the possible miss-spelling 'Bonaventure' and 'Bonadventure'. I can't find Bonadventure listed as a RN ship.

    Bonaventure was a major vessel escorting convoy WS5 and apparently was involved with an engagement with Admiral Hipper on the 25th December 1940.

    Another 'Dido' class, HMS Phoebe, was involved with the evacuation of Greece which is my current area of research.
    There seems to have been a good deal of alteration to the armament of the 'Dido' class of Cruisers and if you have a picture of Bonaventure or Phoebe in 1940 or early 1941 I would love to see them.

    Best regards,

    I have this picture plus a different much larger one that I will email you if you PM me your email a/d.

    Thanks for those pictures. Just great.

    Was looking through TNA for stuff on Boadicea for a while before l realised they had spelt it wrong in their catalogue. They spelt it Bordicea!!!!
