Hi michael, where was your dad from?


Chris Locke - 15 March 2012

Very sad to here of Janet Mason passing on, we are from Swansea south wales, my dad Stanley Locke served aboard HMS Tetcott he was a signalman on ship, we were on holiday in Devon Nov-2010, we called to the museum to see Janet but she was not working that day, she got to know we were in the Museum and the next thing she was on the phone to us at the Museum, she Invited us (me and the wife) to call to her home for tea, it was lovely talking about the Tecott and Crew, met Peter her Husband, lovely man, Janet will be missed very much


Robert Davenport - 4 July 2011

Very saddened to learn today of Janet Mason's death on 29th May 2011; Janet was always such an enthusiastic supporter of the Tetcott cause and together with Shawn, she made it all happen; Janet will be greatly missed by all those who knew her, but the book and this website are a lasting memorial to her, just as much as the are to Tetcott and her crew; Rest in peace.

Sarah Grant - 6 August 2007

After reading this site, i feel absolutely closer to and have found a more understanding of how honoured i feel being the grand daughter of Albert 'Bert' S Carlson AB who served on board the HMS Tetcott, my grand father passed away, it'll be six years by January 2008, i know he had attended a reunion a good few years ago and i know just how happy he felt to be able to re-unite with fellow shipmates and officers - this is an amazing site; I am extemely proud of my grand father; I would be very grateful if you or anyone could possibly let me have a list of the medals he would have received - i would very much like to obtain a replacement set if it was at all possible

My father, LRF (Ron) Trowbridge, was a petty office on what he called "the lucky ship" from ?42 - 45; I've been gathering snippets of information on Tettcott for years; I'll now buy the book; Thanks to all involved; My father passed away in 1990, otherwise I'm sure he'd have loved to have come to a reunion;
