I am trying to purchase an HMS Dido pin for my friend Robert Freson here in Maine who served aboard her during WWII. Is there a way the association can sell me a pin and perhaps a member would mail it to me in the United States? Thank you.

My uncle served on the Dido during wwii. I know he did Russian convoys and also around Greece, where he meet and married my Aunt . His name was Walter Beamiss. Any one left who may remember him.

Just remembering after passing out of Raleigh I was flown alone to Singapore to join Dido as JS2. I think to replace someone - don’t remember being told. All a bit of a wake up call. Seems a long time ago now, and it was.

On behalf of my Father - Peter William Raggett - Stoker . Best wishes lads . My father kept a lot to himself about his service but you could tell how proud he was to have served with the Dido crew . I do remember him saying that the only time he was allowed on deck was at night to have a smoke . Kept up the stuyvesants till 1999 and a ripe age of 79
