HMS COCHRANE 14-Oct-42 to about 28-Oct-42
His record states that he was assigned to Cochrane on 14th October. HMS Cochrane was the designation of Rosyth Naval Base from 1938 until 1947 when the name was discontinued for a short time. It was situated in the base itself. I can find no more details than this at the moment and as HMS Nelson sailed from Scapa for Gibraltar on 30th October I would assume that Dad rejoined her before they left.
