Info / pictures of the Gerusalemme taken by William John Fowler who served on the Hospital Ship Gerusalemme as 1st Electrician
I have some info/pictures of the Gerusalemme, my father was 1st electrician during the 45/46 era. How do I add bits to the various streams of conversation that are going on?
Thank you for that.
You can make a contribution via our Forum on AHOY at URL: http://www.fogbugz.tkwebservice.com/?ahoy or write to me via my E-Mail address listed below, I would love to have you photos and information about Gerusalemme please.
Then Terry, my Web Master in Atlanta Georgia will upload it at the appropriate place on our site.
Look forward to hearing from you.
I have attached some pics for you. I am trying to put some dates to the events as I do have a bit of narrative from my father but as with many of the things that are old, the facts don't always tie up and as I don't have him to ask anymore it is a bit like doing a jigsaw without a picture.
Others to follow
a few more with notes.
A few more pics to come but I am trying to get some more data together.
Both Terry and I am delighted with all the pictures that your Dad took regarding the Hospital ship Gerusalemme. Could you please spell out his full name so we might properly acknowledge his photpgraphic skills on AHOY with his pictures?
As usual many thanks.
His name was William John Fowler, he was either known as Will or Bill, most commonly Bill by his mates. He served on the Gerusalemme as 1st Electrician as part of the Union Castle Company crew, service records show joined ship 13 Feb 1945 Durban and left
I am still trying to put together dates and other pics, I have about 75 from what I think is this time in his life...I have communicated with a Tony Lord who had entered some questions on Ahoy, he also served on the ship but as part of the RN contingent. This is proving quite usefull in working out some of the details.
I hope to put together a timeline with pictures in the end.
