I notice on your website you have a photo from Chris Young of craft no. 126. My late father, Terence Padmore, was a navigator on craft no.124, which looks identical. I would very much like to find out more info about him/craft during the war. He did divulge snippets of info & I know he was stationed at Lowestoft, Liverpool & Isla at various stages during the war. Thats all I Know! I enclose a photo, & I do have more of the crew.

Hi Andrew, I live at Lowestoft and would very much like to use your picture of the ASR craft 124. I look after the website www.lowestoftmaritimemuseum.org.uk and have a friend who worked for the British Power Boat Co when the whalebacks were being produced. During the war he served on them in the RAF and was based at Newhaven. My email address is:-  (email address removed site rules sorry).

My father was chief engineer on boat 586 based in Bay shore , Long Island, N.Y. from 1944-5. He's the only surviving crew member now at 94.

My Father was also on 124 in the engine room.  He has a similar photo.  I also saw other photos of the crew of 124 at the museum in Flixton when I visited two years ago.  My father will celebrate his 95th birthday in two days time, 2 September 2014 and he is still in good health.
