No, I am much too young to have been in World War II.
I am carrying on as webmaster of this site, continuing the work of a good man who put all of this information together but who has passed on. He was eager to help others who inquired about the Armed Guard and, like him, I am delighted to be able to help. I have found a few other websites that are often goldmines of information when trying to answer inquiries such as yours.
Regrettably, I do not know if any of your father's ship mates are still living, nor do I have contact information for any of them.
