thanks for your message re my dad SCG Fred Ralph. We left the UK in 1955 and dad transferred to the RNZN where he served for another 20 years making his total naval time 39 1/2 years. He finished as a Lt Cdr , Whilst he is frail now and hasn't much sight or hearing his mind is still good and he shares many naval ditties with us. He is in a rest home in Taupo along with Mum they are both 94 years old. On April 25th I will be wheeling him to the local cenetaph for our ANZAC day service which he attends every year. Thanks Lynda Fairley
