I have just received my Dads service records from Navy Search, Frank Forbes Grant MX99921 was Petty Officer Motor Mechanic on MGB60. I am looking for contacts, pictures, and any information or anecdotes as he died when I was 21 and we never had that conversation.

Hello there,
Yes, the only thing I do know about here was that in fact she survived till recently, was being restored at Newsons yard Lowestoft when unfortunatley the shed burnt down, nearly taking MTB 102 with it as she was on the slip way outside, yard is now re-built and working fine, owned by the 102 trust in fact, her service history I don't know, but I am sure hon. colleagues here will be able to help, all the best,

Very sad to hear that, but still happy to receive any of her history.
I now have a nice picture of her crew but it measures in at 203kb at I am not PCL enough to zip it, how can I get it to you?
Kind regards,
