Petty Officer Patrick Campbell


In March 2015 retired Petty Officer Patrick Campbell visited Military Archives to recount his memories of the L.E. Macha's notable first trip abroad. PO Campbell joined the Naval Service in September 1946 and served on board the L.E. Macha as Engine Room Artificer during her trip to Nice.

He had recently celebrated his 90th birthday and at his family's suggestion made contact with our office. We appreciate the assistance he gave us in identifying some of the images displayed in this exhibition. In particular however we appreciate his generosity in sharing his own photographs and his personal recollections with us.
