HMS Victory 3.

HMS VICTORY 3   24-Jul-1941    to    16-Aug-41

Woolley Park House. Daily Mail

Woolley Park is a 17th Century House that is owned by the Wroughton Family and has been since it was built. It must have been commandeered during the war. Again I’m not sure if Dad would have actually gone here or just the paperwork carried out, but I assume that it would have been a safe barracks for ratings waiting for postings, even if it was a temporary camp in the extensive grounds. In any case he was only there just over three weeks before posting to his first real ship.
