August 26, 2011
I'm doing a memoir for me and my family.
A long time ago I served on the HMAS Vengance. I was on-board 27 October to 3 December 1954 as a National Service Trainee.
Although I recall most of the journey to Japan and return I would like to be more accurate as to some of the incidence of the voyage. eg. There was an incident at sea when the Captain changed course to check out a lonely canoe -small lakatoi - which seemed to be lost in the middle of the ocean. It had a crew of three, but only two were bailing. They refused any assistance so we left.
I appreciate any assistance.
I had left Vengeance just before you joined her, an afraid I do not know where her RAN logs might be stored.
