Remembered Today:

Wase Garrett Greenacre

Someone asked me about the Navy in WW1 and I do not know a lot (nothing!)

I have found the record of his service on the National Archives which he will be downloading in due course.

He is - Wase Garrett Greenacre MB1137. It also has 8 October 1894 which I presume is his birth date.

He probably lived in Felixstowe and served on Mine clearance.

Are there any other records I could look at?

He thinks he may have been a junior officer.

Any help gratefully received.

He served as a rating in the Motor Boat Section of the RNVR. Enlistment papers at the FAA Museum. His rating's record of service from Kew should show if he was commissioned.

Haven't found a match for him as a RN, RNVR or Army officer.

His medal entitlement should be shown on the medal roll on microfilm at the UK, National Archives, Kew, in ADM 171/126.

He could have been a petty officer, I was checking for commissioned & Naval warrant officers.

He did say it was a 'junior officer' so Petty Officer would fit. Hopefully he will phone me back soon with the NA info.

He was actually checking out my Washing machine for repair! Then mentioned that he could not find anything on his Grandfathers service.

Cheers

Steve
