Thanks for the info James.
I have seen the photo's of Clematis and actually thought my Dad was on a few of them but my sisters, whilst agreeing one chap does look a bit like him, tend to think it isn't. He was serving on her during '43 but never mentioned going to Gibraltar, but then he never spoke when we were children and it was only during his last years we found out what little we do know so that's a further line of enquiry I can chase.


By this;  'mod historical ships dept' do you mean M.O.D. historical ships department?

The flower class corvette association may be able to help you

Google it online, they release details to next of kin

The flower class covette forum under HMS Clematis has photos of crew from  1943

At one point she was in Gibraltar in 1943

Hope this helps

You are looking at convoy movements

She may have been involved with escorting non convoy vessels or on routine patrols, this was to give the crews a break from convoy duty

Write to mod historical ships dept to see if the log book still survives this will give a detailed movements

Mod records are sealed until 25 years after death unless you are next of kin

The roll for hms London for Yangtze has been published in many books and is also online
