My father, Vincent Steers Chatfield, served on HMS Amethyst in 1945 and 1946 as an Able Seaman. I believe he was injured in an onboard accident while taking on supplies in Auckland, NZ, however he rejoined the ship and sailed to Sydney, Australia where he was put ashore to recover from his injuries. He was awarded the King's Badge as a result of the above mentioned incident. Do you have any information about his time aboard the Amethyst.
