Margaret (Peggy) Cloherty, the daughter of the late James "Mickey" Thornton, writes that her father was a Stoker on HMS Superb in 1946. He had served throughout the War and was on Arctic Convoys and was part of British Fleet in the Pacific.

In 1946 he was assigned to HMS Superb. He is in Bert Hall's video as "Mickey Thornton". He was Irish so he often got the nickname of Mick, Paddy or Mickey. Unfortunately my Dad died in 1979 of a heart attack. He was 61 years of age. He was a great Dad and I and my brother still miss his gentle presence. It was a lovely surprise to see him in the Bert Hall video. Thank you to the Hall family for posting that. Thank you for a great website
