The medals are the Distinguished Service Medal, the 1939-45, Atlantic, Africa Star and Pacific Stars, War Medal and Russian 60th Anniversary Medal. Along with the above you will receive a full copy of all my research – in excess more than 50 A4 pages of information, containing Charles full service records, medal roll entries, etc on a CD. Below as a brief description of Ronalds career – note ive tried to keep it brief but there is so much of interest and he saw action in so many different areas of conflict its not been easy. Ronald enlisted in the Royal Navy on the 15th August 1920 at the age of fifteen and after training and serving on various ships, he was posted for service on the aircraft Carrier Ark Royal in 1939. In October Ark Royal was deployed in Indian Ocean with HM Battleship MALAYA and HM Destroyer BULLDOG as part of the RNs Hunting Force. In April 1940 the Ark Royal was supposed to have moved to the Eastern Mediterranean but this was rapidly changed after the German invasion of Norway and the Ark Royal was sent to support the Home Fleet off Norway during Operation Rupert (the British and French attempt to take the key port of Narvik in northern Norway from the German hands). On the 24th of the month they commenced air operations in support of the military and the GLADIATOR aircraft flew off to establish airfield on a frozen lake in Romsdal Valley. Operation continued and in May Ark Royal provided air cover for evacuations at Andalsnes and Molde. On the 9th May 1940 Ronald was posted to HMS Defiance for more training before joining the Aircraft Carrier HMS Victorious on the 29th March 1941. Victorious was then placed at the disposal of the Commander in Chief of the Home Fleet and sailed with HM Battleship KING GEORGE V in search of the German battleship BISMARCK which was on passage into Atlantic. Eventually having located the Bismarck the Victorious launched an air strike on the 24th and did manage one hit but no substantial damages done. In June the carrier carried out searched for German supply ships and then took passage along with the Ark Royal to Gibraltar (escorted by ships of Force H) in order to deliver HURRICANE aircraft to Malta and help relieve the pressure of the siege. The carrier was then deployed with HM Aircraft Carrier FURIOUS and the 1st Cruiser Squadron to escort HM Minelaying Cruiser ADVENTURE carrying mines to Murmansk (Operation EF) and on the 30th screened by 6 destroyers of the Home Fleet carried out air strikes on Kirkenes. During August the carrier Covered the return passage of HM Aircraft Carrier ARGUS after delivering HURRICANE aircraft to Murmansk and during September Launched repeated air strikes against targets at Tromso and shore targets at Vestfjord. In March 1942 the carrier Launched unsuccessful strikes on the German battleship T IRPITZ and was then deployed to cover the passage of Russian Convoys. In July the carrier was withdrawn for Exercises with HM Aircraft Carriers INDOMITABLE, FURIOUS, EAGLE and ARGUS to improve multi-carrier operating techniques (Exercise BERSERK) and in August Joined’Force Z’ covering the Sicilian Narrows (Operation PEDESTAL) during which she was hit by bomb which broke up on Impact with flight deck. In December 1942 the carrier was Nominated for loan service in Pacific with US Navy and on the 20th took passage to Norfolk, Virginia and on the 4th March 1943 arrived at Pearl Harbour where she was converted for the operation of US Navy WILDCAT and AVENGER aircraft. In may she carried out exercises with US aircraft carrier USS SARATOGA and US battleship USS NORTH CAROLINA. On completion of work-up for service with US Navy took passage to join US Third Fleet Task Group 36.3 for support of US landing operations and in August covered the landings on New Georgia. In early 1944 the carrier undertook rehearsals with other Home Fleet aircraft carriers for attack on TIRPITZ and on the 2nd April joined Force 2 (HM Aircraft Carriers FURIOUS, SEARCHER, EMPEROR, PURSUER and FENCER) for attacks on TIRPITZ in Altenfjord, Norway (Operation TUNGSTEN). Attacks were then launched on the 3rd (loosing three aircraft) and obtained several direct hits. In July the carrier was posted for service with the Eastern Fleet and on the 25th launched attacks on airfields near Sabang, Sumatra. In august they covered the Eastern Fleet units providing air-sea rescue facilities during a series of attacks by US Army aircraft on S umatra (Operations BOOMERANG). On the 29th Carried out air attacks on Padang, Indaroeng and Emmahaven. In September the carrier carried out attacks on railway yards at Sigli, Sumatra and photo-reconnaissance of Nicobars escorted by HMS HOWE (Operation LIGHT). In October the carrier attacked Nicobars and Nancowry harbour, sadly Four aircraft were destroyed and five damaged during enemy air attacks. In November the carrier transferred to the British Pacific Fleet and in January 1945 Joined HMS INDOMITABLE and HMS IMPLACABLE for air strikes on oi l refineries at Pangkalan Brandan , the carrier then attacked r efineries in Sumatra on the 16th, launched air attacks on Pladjoeon the 24th and on the 29th attacked oil installations at Soengi-Gerong. After the above attacks the carrier received multiple retaliatory KAMIKAZE attacks , which were beaten off and sustained Losses by all Carriers of 41, 9 pilots captured by the Japanese were executed. In February 1945 the carrier was transferred to Task Force 113 at Sydney to prepare for service with the US Navy and in March was deployed to neutralise airfields in the Sakashima Gunto Group Operation ICEBERG I. In April the carrier narrowly escaped damage during KAMIKAZE attack when aircraft exploded alongside and carried out attacks on the Formosan airfields and Formosa itself. On the 16th the carrier attacked targets at Ishigaki and Mikayo with refuelling breaks until 20/4/45. In May the carrier came under concentrated KAMIKAZE attacks one of which exploded on the island structure causing fires and damage to boiler steam piping. However with Speed reduced to 19 knots, the carrier resumed Air operations after just 8 hours. On the 9th air strikes were launched on Hirara and Ishigaki and again the carrier was hit by unexpected KAMIKAZE attacks. The first damaged the Flight Deck and equipment but the second failed to explode. Again with capability reduced the carrier remained in operations. Finally on the 25th June the carrier was withdrawn from operations and received repairs at Sydney, Australia. Returning to operations on the 6th July 1945 the Aircraft carried out strikes on airfields in the Tokyo area and on the 24th attacked Osaka. With the war now over on the 18th December 1945 Ronald was discharged from the service and for his outstanding contribution aboard HMS Victorious during its many operations Ronald was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal on the 1st January 1946.

The Italy Star. WW2 War Medal. Engraved on Rim: J. Long Service Medal for Good Conduct (GVR). Officially Impressed on Rim: 78591J. HMS Glorious was the second of the three Courageous-class battlecruisers built for the Royal Navy during the First World War. Designed to support the Baltic Project championed by the First Sea Lord, Lord Fisher, they were relatively lightly armed and armoured. Glorious was completed in late 1916 and spent the war patrolling the North Sea. She participated in the Second Battle of Heligoland Bight in November 1917 and was present when the German High Seas Fleet surrendered a year later. Glorious was paid off after the war, but was rebuilt as an aircraft carrier during the late 1920s. She could carry 30 per cent more aircraft than her half-sister Furious which had a similar tonnage. After re-commissioning in 1930, she spent most of her career operating in the Mediterranean Sea. After the start of the Second World War, Glorious spent the rest of 1939 unsuccessfully hunting for the commerce-raiding German cruiser Admiral Graf Spee in the Indian Ocean before returning to the Mediterranean. She was recalled home in April 1940 to support operations in Norway. Read the interesting attached document in this link about the Mystery Sinking of the HMS Glorius.
