    My details appear to be fully correct and were for the County Class Missile destroyer, launched in 1960 I believe. There were others before that too, so shouldn’t the list be made for the actual ship concerned?

    Just a thought.

    regards

    Thanks for you comment BUT it is for the ship concerned HMS DEVONSHIRE. Unless of course you mean for each commission of all the Devonshire’s?

  13. Mathison Andrew OEMech2

    February 3, 2017 at 17:28

    No I didn’t mean that.

    Some time ago there were entries for people who served on the previous Devonshire, I don’t remember exactly, but pre and during WW2 if I remember correctly. Have they been sorted out?

    Regards

    Hello,
    I apologise for contacting you with little information and was hoping that someone might remember my Dad, Maurice Mead. He joined the Navy in November 1943 and served on HMS Devonshire at some point in his career, though I can’t be specific. I do know that he became a radar operator but whether that came after or during his time on HMS Devonshire I don’t know and sadly he passed away as a young man in 1978 when I was too young to think of asking about his past. If anyone can add anyhting to this it would mean a very great deal to me and if there is anyone who personally knew him it would be wonderful to be in touch.
    Thank you so much and very best wishes,
    Jean

    I have just applied for and received the Arctic Star Medal for service on Devonshire in August  1944
    If it is of any interest, I sent copies of the Devonshires log for that period proving Arctic service and the Defence Dept wrote back to confirm award and also thanking me for the log copies and saying they would use if for future references.   
    So any ex Devonshires applying for the medal will only have to provide proof of service during August 1944.
     
    Hope this might be useful
