My father was Leslie “Jumper” Collins who served on HMS Myngs on the Russian Convoys.

I built a website as a tribute to him using his diary … it only spans a short while , 1 year 1945, and he did go out to the far east for some of that time BUT there is reference to when he was on the Arctic convoys.

My dad served in HM Royal Navy with Jackie Turpin, his best mate, (Jackie was brother to the famous Randolph Turpin World Champion boxer from Leamington Spa).
