Captain J P Sparling

August 07, 2010

I'd appreciate it if you could point me in the direction of getting information on the naval career of Captain
John Patrick Sparling.

I understand that he was in the Merchant Navy and was in command of a depot ship in Scapa Flow during WW2.

He died on the 8th Oct 1959

I have attached a photograph of Captain Sparling which may be of assistance

Hoping you can help

Hello Professor Strang,

I am sorry, but I am unable to turn up any detail at all on Captain J P Sparling.

I suggest you look at this site URL:

its part of the UK National Archives.
