HMS Nelson
« on: 20 January 2023 06:51:43 am »

I am attempting to find out the movements of HMS Nelson between 1st September 1932 and 31st March 1933. Can any of the site experts help please? Very much appreciate any help in advance. Thank you.

Once again I thank you Sir. Your patience, responsiveness and assistance is so much appreciated as I have waded through all my fathers papers and documentation. Obviously he is no longer around, so as a non naval person I need to do as much research as I can from Australia via the web, libraries etc but when I strike a dead end it is this forum that I come to. I salute you.
