WW2 Royal Navy Uniform History


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm trying to trace some history relating to some WW2 Royal Navy kit i have in my possession. I know nothing about Royal Naval history so hoping somebody on here does.

What i know so far is that Ordinary Seaman Raymond Keith Morris served with the Royal Navy on HMS Wrangler circa 1938.

I did an internet search and found an Able Seaman Raymond Keith Morris was lost in action on 19th November 1941 whilst serving with the Royal Austrilian Navy on the "Sydney".

Could this be the same person? What is the likelyhood of a Naval Seaman being posted to the Australian Navy?

Hope you can help.

Thanks

Richard

Hi,

I've just checked the Navy records and it's definitely a different Sailor, the Raymond Keith Morris who was lost on the Sydney was an Australian born Sailor from South Australia.

I hope that helps,

Kevin
