My Grandads War Medals for Merchant Navy Service in the Mediterranean and on the Atlantic and Russian Convoys - Left to right these are the British War Medal, Africa Star (With North Africa Bar) , Atlantic Star and 1939 - 1945 Star.
Above is the Veterans badge I recently sent off for from the Merchant Navy Association. I didnt realise that these were available to living veterans until I was chasing the use of a photographfor my site.

My interest in ships and the sea started back in 2006 when I worked for a couple of years on the banks of the River Mersey. I have since been on a couple of cruises around the Med and in the Far East and have started to take more interest in researching and photographing some of the ships and other vessels seen on my travels.
