1936-44 Very interesting original correspondence of approximately 119 covers from a brother (Leading Stoker Frederick Bam originally from Port Elizabeth¬ South Africa) to his younger sister Phyllis at 43 Eastbury Grove Chiswick London. Bam commenced his career on HMS Furious at Devonport travelling to Malta¬ Alexandria and Invergorden in Scotland until September 1937 when he joined the Leander Class Cruiser HMS Neptune travelling to Simonstown South Africa via the Canaries then a visit to Lagos and then Mozambique returning via Daker in Senegal. Upon the outbreak of war HMS Neptune patrolled the South Atlantic with the New Zealand Division of the Royal Navy and participated in the pursuit of the Graf Spee and from July 1940 HMS Neptune was in the Mediterranean. In late November 1940 (judging by the letters) he was transferred due to ill health to Alexanderia & Palestine where he spent some time recoperating. This turned out to be a stroke of luck as between 19th/20th December HMS Neptune struck 4 Italian mines off the coast of Tripoli killing 737 of the 738 man crew with the only survivor being a Mr Norman Walter. The correspondence shows he went back to South Africa on various ships and spent some time in and around Ceylon. Bam eventually settled in Durban South Africa. The lot includes 10 black and white pictures of Bam in various locations mostly in uniform a Christmas card having a colour picture of HMS Neptune on the front plus a letter from the Royal Navy Barracks Devonport dated 22 January 1942 to Phyllis confirming Bam had not been reported as a causualty from the demise of HMS Neptune. Various stamps applied to correspondence including some non GB with a good range of Maritime and Naval handstamps. ()
