My father served on Eagle when it visited Blackpool in July 1953 as part of the Spring Tour. A couple of years ago the RNLI kindly scattered his ashes out at sea near to where Eagle anchored off North Pier. My father, Frank Smith, is stood by helicopter door when Mayor Edwin Smith and Town Clerk, Trevor Jones were welcomed aboard ship. I want to find out where else Eagle visited as part of that tour, can you help ???

Kind regards,

I am looking for any information about my father, Robert Telford Hughes. He was born in 1937 so he would have been a very young man only 19 when he was on the HMS Eagle in 1956 during the Suez Crisis. He is now 82 and has Alzheimer's Disease but he still remembers being in the Royal Navy and being on board the HMS Eagle and going to Malta, Cyprus and Istanbul. If anyone had any memories or stories to augment his recall about his service it would be greatly appreciated.

I am making enquiries about my father Peter Budden who served on the HMS Eagle through the mid to late 40's and into the 1950's. Dad passed away last week and we are trying to gather information relating to his naval service to include in his memorial service. As we don't have his service number we are struggling to gain any information through official channels. If anyone could provide us with information pertaining to his career and when and where he served it would be greatly appreciated

Kind Regards,
Michael Budden
