HMS Nubian - 1939 to May 1941
« on: 05 August 2021 04:13:56 pm »


My first post on the forum.

I am writing a history of my Great Grandfather from his time in the RN from 1918 through to demobilisation in 1945. At present I am working on his time on the Tribal Destroyer, HMS Nubian, which he joined at her working up trials through to her stern being blown off during the Battle fo Crete in May 1941.

If anyone out there can help me with any aspect of Nubian I would be very grateful and obviously pleased to hear from you! You can email me or pm via the site or via this topic of course.

Also of interest will be any association with Nubian, such as from the other ships in D14 such as Jervis and Mohawk to name a few.

For those who are curious, my Great Grandfather served on a number of ships during his long career as an Able Seaman, most notably Effingham and Hawkins (both two and a half year commissions on the East Indies Station), Iron Duke when a gunnery training ship at Excellent and of course Nubian.
