Thank you for the reply, shame really that she was scrapped. Was hoping she might still be somewhere in existence. I will notify my Grandfather about this, yes that would be great if you could find those images. Thank you for your help

Will take a look over the weekend - sure I kept a print out of the model somewhere. Best wishes. David.

The photos were on the HSL Mouldings site, they aren't there any more.
I put them here for you;

Hello 'pete h'
Place your curser over the image - right click - select e-mail (to yourself)
you may need to run it through a Photoshop or like package.

Hi,
I have lots of photographs off HMS Grey Fox from WW2. My Grandfather served on this boat as part of the coastal forces defense. I originally contacted the Imperial War Museum in London they sent me an application form and lots of miniature photocopies of the photos they hold with catalog numbers that's how I have them in my possession this was some years ago now but I'm sure they still offer the same service. Also if you contact the Maritime museum or the Government Department dealing with defense they can send you a copy of any service records and a list of any medals you grandfather may have received. I did the same thing,

Garry

Hello David
 
While updating some family tree research I found a photograph of my father amongst the crew of HMS SGB4 Grey Fox. It is an original photograph with my father's writing on the reverse in which he identifies the Grey Fox. It's the same photo in your post which you say was taken after the July 1942 incident.
Can you please tell me any more about the photo, when it was taken for example?
My father was Norman Lovatt and he is standing immediately behind your father Lt John Erskine-Hill.
I tried uploading the photo but I was unsuccessful - too large.
Any information gratefully received.
 
Dennis
