Geoff Rees served in the Arctic convoys on a number of ships, including HMS Bermuda. Sadly he is no longer with us but we would love to keep his memory alive. His rank was a Chief Engineer E.R.A on HMS New Foundland. He served on a another two ships but I don’t have their details to hand. I always remember my grandad doing a talk in school and sharing his memories that one of the perks of coming home from a mission was the chocolate Mars bars they gave to the crew when they returned to base. The photo is my grandad and nanny in their service uniforms. Thanks so much for keeping their memories alive and for all that you are doing.
