Having searched for D2762 I have just found this site. My father, Charles Lawton, skippered this boat from Hurnam (?) Sylt between 1958-60. I have photos of the boat and German crew and some memories of sailing on her.

Dad was in the MCU from 39 until 63 and served in Japan, Ceylon, N Africa, Lyme Regis, Pembroke Dock and Holyhead that I can remember. Does anyone have any idea why he would have been in Japan (Miro and Sakai) 46-48? We were there as a family in Iwakuni.

Hello 'skiggsie'

Welcome aboard.

Although ex-RN myself - you will find that there are several RAF marine types who visit and contribute to this site and I am sure that your questions will get answered.

'46-'48 Japan was still very much reeling from the effects of the War of course, but I am sure that MCU's were established there to assist with the occupation and 're-culturing' by the Allies etc.

Can you 'Post' a couple of your pictures up here? - I'm sure that we all would appreciate some fresh shots.

Hi.  I am looking for drawings of the D-Boats as used by the RAF.  2 of the boats were opperated by the SAAF in South Africa.
Our Museum has lost the plans / drawings and as a result I can't get any information.
I was requested by a ex navy member to build a 1/72 scale model of the SAAF P1551 (classification after the Navy took her over).
If anybody can help, especially drawings of the hull, I would be so grateful.
Thanks
