Hi, Anyone have any relatives who remembers British navy ships visiting Cobh in 1945-1946.
I met a man in Uk recently who served on a Minesweeper names HMS Orestes. He told me that he was here for ten months clearing mines after WW2 and how much he enjoyed spending time at Cobh Harbour or Queenstown as it was called then.
I have Googled the name of the ship and Ireland but no information comes up.
Just wondered if anyones still out there that has any interesting memories of that time.
Thank for reading.
It did happen, picture of the vessel is here and confirmation is here
Never heard of it before
u might have more luck if u post this under history and heritage?
