Our Community Museum has a Christmas Card sent in 1942 from the HMS Montgomery. We've found out a number of interesting details about the Montgomery (including that she was under refit in North Carolina when the card was sent!) However, since we are not "Next of Kin" to the sender; we've hit a wall in our Canada based research - as we aren't about to go to the UK to dig further.

So, encouraged by the Topic titles here, we're asking this:

Does anyone know of a Royal Navy seaman who served on HMS Montgomery during 1941 - 1943 (rank not known; but unlikely an officer)
Name: Arthur F. Wright

Failing that direct "lucky strike" approach; can you suggest a source for this kind of information that does an end run around the Privacy fence that seems to thwart our penetration.

Many Thanks.
