My father - John (Jack) Condon - served in the
Royal Marines from January 1923 (originally joining the RMA) until November 1945.
Between 1942-1945 he was ashore first at Chatham and then as NCO i/c Boats Crew at Deal. On discharge he
continued to work for the Marines
I am looking to
contact any Royal Marine veterans who may have known him or served with him on any of the ships during WW2, especially anyone who was
serving on HMS Southampton when she was bombed and then sunk in the Med on 11 January 1941. I realise that there will be few still alive from
that period but possibly there are still some of those who were in their early twenties or so who may still be around.
Please contact Andy (webmaster) with any information.
