Title: George D J Smith, HMS London 1949
Post by: B1ndy on 21 October 2017 09:20:13 AM
Dear All, I am trying to find service records for George D J Smith who served aboard HMS London in 1949. He went on to have a successful career in the Cambridgeshire Constabulary until his passing last year.
I would particularly like to find a crew list from HMS London and medal roll for the Naval GSM (Yangtze clasp).
I'd really appreciate any help out there. Many thanks

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

Regards
