Photos of HMS Lamerton which my granddad served on in 1942 showing my Grandfather and other members of the crew and some photos we found that look like them taking prisoners of war, and also of the damage caused to the Lamerton at some time and when it was in for repair. We would like to thank Tracy Bolden for supplying these photographs.
