    Hi Phil

    I’ve a sketchy note that I wrote with no attribution from some 20yrs ago, which I’m not sure is of more hindrance than help:-
    Sept/Oct 1940, 870 French Merchant Seaman at Crystal Palace, 60+ Volunteered under MoS, Admin HMS President, sent to ships.
    Undesirables and those of bad character sent to Arrowe Park Camp (Liverpool), offences inc Rape, Arson, Gross Indecent conduct
    and Larceny

    Regards
