Royal Marines HMS London
My dad, Stan Prest, joined HMS London at Chatham as a 17-year-old in 1941. He was on Russian convoys to Archangel, receiving the Atlantic Star and I'm in the process of applying for the Arctic Star. He was also awarded the Burma Star for their work in the Pacific and steamed down to Perth or Freemantle for a refit. I have pictures of the Japanese surrender at Sabang and a photo of what my dad called the big four in Alexandria. He definitely got around.
