Looking for Communicators and others who may have served in HMNZS Black Prince in 1953 when she deployed to the Mediterranean. If you were one of these lucky souls Al Peck would like you to make contact.
In 2003 Al Peck represented the RNZN at the 50th anniversary of a devastating earthquake in the Greek island of Zaknythos. Why? Because Black Prince was the first ship to arrive for earthquake relief. She had deployed for the Coronation Review and was operating in the Med at the time. The locals still hold our Navy in high regards. It occurred to Al that this is one event on a deployment that must have been very significant for those who were there. He is trying to get a few original stories to include in a possible article for Navy Today. If you can help Al in his quest leave a comment to this post.
