    My Uncle was at HMS Odyssey 13th Feb 1944 to 15th July 1945. Like you i cannot find him mentioned anywhere, i have applied for his service record and eagerly await its arrival. I have attached a newspaper clipping of an interview he gave to a local journalist about his time at Juno

    My Uncle Fred Bonser was also based at HMS Odyssey from 01.04 - 30.06.1944, prior to that it states Lent: 102 Sub Base Area and after Duty: naval party 1568 then 1732. He is listed as returning to Odyssey and Naval Party 1732 a few times through his service. He said that he was a signaller at Juno Beach, using flags to signal back to the ships. After that we are not sure what he did.
    We assume he was part of the RN Commandos.
