If so, we’d love to hear from you to build a database of names associated with the Standard and Triumph company. Read More HERE.

To add a name, click on the ‘Submit a Name’ link below.
Please add the surname first.
Use the format: SmithJohn in the name field, then add a description; here you can include a role, location, service dates etc plus any other information you think may be of interest, finishing with your name (you may be submitting on behalf of a family member). Don’t worry how much – or little – you write in the description box – everything helps!

Thank you.
