Thanks you Chris for this little piece of history. This must have been in Gladstone dock and could be girls from Derby House?

Eric Smith 1944 & 1945

My father Eric Smith from Nottingham served on the HMS Wild Goose in 1944 to 1946.  I have attached a few of his navy photos.
He passed away in 1999, but was very proud of his service on the Wild Goose.  Keith Smith.
