Graham Parsons

My name is Graham Parsons. I joined the Royal Navy at 15 as a medic, following in the family tradition of seafarers serving at the Royal Naval Hospital Haslar and various shore establishments in the Portsmouth area as well as a draft to the Royal Marine Commando's as a medic. I was always interested in the world wars from an early age and have a passion for anything connected with the armed services. In more recent times I have researched my ancestors war histories, which led me to discover the British War Memorial Project. Although I left the Royal Navy some years ago I am still a medic working for the Home office as a Health Care Officer. I'm proud to be associated with the project as a volunteer for Portugal. I fully support the projects aims as an ex-service man and feel that we should never forget the ultimate sacrifice made by so many young men for their country and our freedom.


The project relies solely on volunteer help. If you believe you can help in any way (photographing, admin, sponsorship, etc) then please contact us. If you would like to help with the photography please download the Guidance and Volunteer policy PDF via link on the volunteers page.
