Alec Wear


Information and photos provided by Elizabeth Wear (granddaughter)

My grandfather was Alec Percival Henry Wear, Pay Lieutenant RNVR. 2nd April 1909-3rd Dec 1988, from Bristol).

he travelled out to Murmansk on PQ12 in February/March 1942 and returned on HMS Onslow, part of RA52 in January 1943.
He wrote a memoir in the 1970s of his time in Russia which I am using to research his life and war service.
Here is a detailed and illustrated summary of my grandfather’s journey from Bristol to Russia and his time in North Russia.
