Britain At War magazine include HMS Battler photos in their Salerno feature

I recently got a nice email from Martin at Britain At War Magazine ( He had found the HMS Battler photos I have uploaded to Flickr (300 photos of HMS Battler are here and asked if the magazine could use a couple of them for a forthcoming feature they were running on Salerno.

I was happy to oblige as the purpose of doing this is to share the information I have inherited with as wider audience as possible. Martin also sent me the August issue (on sale now) so I could see the excellent Salerno article they produced and a few scans showing the contributed images (and the kind credit) are below:

My father served on HMS Battler from 1942 - 45. As a child he would tell me of his trips to America,Gibralter,the Mediterranean ,through the Suez Canal and on to India, Ceylon South Africa etc. I like most of my generation never really appreciated the dangers he faced nor the sacrifices he made. He always described these years as the best of his life,
