Old Photos of Irish Naval Vessels

    I'm trying desperatly to get my hands on photos of old boats that my grandfather served on in years gone past.

    The boats would have been in operation from the early 1920's onwards.

    I've tried the usual Google searches but nothing has given any results.

    Anyone know if its possible get old archive photos from the Navy of old boats used by them.

    I'll list the boats names and I'd really apprecaite any info whatsoever - I'm trying to gather a montage of photos for my own Dad who is turing 70 later this year.

    ML Sir Cecil Romer - 1929
    ML Raven II - 1931
    ML Jackdaw - 1934

    thanks in advnace.

    If you go to facebook- there is a page called "Irish Navy Photo Section".

    There are lots of albums of old Navy pictures etc. that you could have a look through. I'm not sure if you'd find exactly what you're looking for but I'm sure the person who runs the page would have no problem helping you if you sent them a private message.
