Biography/Interests/Remarks My father was a cook in the Royal Navy. His service details are PMX 840095, CPO R.E.Timms. I have his records here at home. They state that he went out to Malta on the Ranpura, (we as a family, flew out there). While he was in Malta, he was sent to Suez on the Lofoten. I have his medals here, one of which is the naval GSM (Near East). My father died in 1984 aged 54, I am trying to piece together his life in the Royal navy
