Does anyone have any information, photo or know if a relative served on this boat which operated in the Mediterranean Sea until it was blown up on 27 th June 1944

Welcome to the boards Graham.

If you Google Motor Torpedo Boat HM640 there are lots of photos of it.

Thanks Kathleen for your reply but this does not bring up the specific photo of MTB 640 which is what I am after.
Please redirect me if I am wrong.
Kind regards

Try this site. You may find what you are looking for on one of the group photos. I have been looking at the picture of all ships sunk in WW2, but it needs to be a lot bigger!!

Thanks Andysmum but sadly it is not there.
Thanks for your help
Kind regards

If at first you don't succeed********* the link below is for the Imperial War Museum. I don't think it's a photo, (top item on page), but it might tell you something about the ship.

I think you have to buy it, (probably a CD), but OH has bought things from them and they are good value.

If this doesn't work, I have run out of ideas - sorry.
