My uncle Norman was on a mine sweeper during World War 1 and I wondered if anyone would be able to find the ship or ships he served on please?. He was residing at 3/36 Franchise street at the time. Many thanks. Jean. :star::star::positive::positive::cupcake::cupcake:

Can't find him mentioned anywhere, unless the birth in West Bromwich in 1924 is him.

Hi Lloyd yes that is Uncle Norman. I am sure Nan said he joined up when he was too young to do so. Thanks.
