HMS Valiant in 2014
Written by Mark Lamb (now Deceased)I am the Grandson of Mark Lamb, Royal Marine who served on HMS Valiant during WW2. I welcome any communication links as I research his past. I know not much but he was a boxer (possible RM champion?) and footballer (supported West Ham). He lived a great life post military having survived TB in the late 40’s.
