    I am looking for information on a WW2 U.K. Veteran JX234854/co, he served on the HMS Collingwood.

    Any assistance at all would be greatly appreciated by his son and grandchildren, thank you.

    HMS Collingwood is a shore establishment set up in WW2 for initial training of 'hostilities only' seaman and communications ratings. Once you obtain the service records for this man all will become clearer but it is likely that HMS Collingwood was his introduction to the RN.
