    My dad was on HMS Nelson. I took him to Malta for a reunion when they all got a medal. I had a copy of the book about the convoy and I got all the lads to sign it. I feel I should do something with it but I don’t know what. Any ideas?
    Obviously I am not trying to sell it I just want people who understand what it represen S to be able to see it

    My father, Dr Zygmunt Fischer ,Polish by birth, was a medical officer in the British Merchant navy and the medical officer on MV Troilus on the Malta convoy in 1942 . I remember him telling me that he had been on one of the other convoy ships whose engine failed . He was transferred to the Troilus and looked around to see his previous ship bombed and sunk .
    They rescued from the sea a German pilot whose plane had beed shot down ..
    He was given a book inscribed by the government of Malta representing the people of Malta thanking him and the other sailors on the convoy for the delivery of much needed supplies .,
    He subsequently transferred to the Royal Australian navy and saw actioin in New Guinea and the Solomon Islands before settling in Perth Western Australia after the war ended . He was the Royal Flying doctor in North Western Australia for about 2 years and went on to specialise in Thoracic Medicine and particularly the treatment of Tuberculosis .
    Dr Robert Fisher (The Fischer anglicised by my father post war as it was a German spelling similar to Battenberg – converted to Mountbatten )
