Seeking photos from HMS Glendower & Royal Arthur?

1

My grandfather served in HMS Royal Arthur from 1939-1940 as an instructor, before he moved to HMS Glendower. He was a Petty Officer Gunner. Kelleher was his name, and he was an irishman by birth.

Where might I be able to find more information about either Royal Arthur or Glendower?

I am hoping to uncover photos of the personnel and life therein.

Hello -- this is a Q&A site not a forum so thie question doesn't really fit here. You could try editing it to fit ourguidelines at https://genealogy.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic and https://genealogy.stackexchange.com/help/dont-ask if you have specific question syou need to address about your grandfather but asking for photos doesn't belong here.

2Can we salvage this by editing it to make it more generally useful and more in-line with the site guidelines -- how to find websites and background information about WWII ships, etc? – Jan Murphy – 2017-11-08T22:54:04.793

Sounds like a great idea @JanMurphy – PolyGeo – 2017-11-09T03:48:21.980

There is a chapter with photos on both HMS Royal Arthur and HMS Glendower in The Reminiscences of a Radar Plotter by John Barford Lindop ( Amazon Books ) where all, well some, will be revealed.
