A Short History of HMS St Christopher


There are quite a number of things that we would like to know about HMS St Christopher so would like to hear from anyone who served there, has any knowledge of HMS St Christopher or the other military sites in the Fort William area.

Where was the accommodation camp for HMS St Christopher?  Various groups of huts can be seen around the area but we are not sure what each were used for.  

Was the large camp (now caravan site) part of the base or part of the ship repair base?

There is a large group of buildings at Annat, just West of the old paper mill.  Was that HMS St Christopher or the ship repair base or something else?

There is another group of huts just West of Kilmallie churchyard.

Were any of the islands off Corpach used?

Were there any large fuel tanks?

Was munitions just stored in some of the huts or was there a magazine?

Various other military units were around the area - can you remember anything about them?

Do you know anything about these RNAD listed in Hansard in 1946
