Photo of my father, Norman Lock, who is on your right as you look at photo. Norman is with an unidentified Royal navy sailor. It is in 1946, close to end of WW2 or end of WW2. The location is Jack Dempsey's Broadway Bar, near Forty-ninth Street, New York, USA. Norman went back to the UK on the Queen Mary. Probably because HMS Findhorn was returned to the USA under a loan agreement with USA government.

Some of the places where Norman travelled to with the Royal Navy in WW2 that he put on the back of his King Neptune Certificate.  A Copy is under the Lock family tree.
