Title: HMS Sheffield F96
Post by: Highflyer on August 21, 2017, 02:16:37 pm
Who can tell me how to find the location of this ship in February, 1996?
I do know where she was, but can't find a way to variety our location at that time. Obviously the ships log would say, but as a member of the public is there a way I can track historically where she was?
Can any one help? :-\

If the ship had AIS filled and was broadcasting at the time I am afraid it will be very difficult. Harbour Masters may log all vessels entering and leaving ports but this will require a specific request and a search of the records if they are still available, and how far they can go back. It may be worth contacting the PRO at Kew to see if they store such data and give reader i.e. public access to it.
There is a History Section at Portsmouth Naval base which could be of use and it may be worth contacting them.
