Mike O Posted 5 January , 2011 Share Posted 5 January , 2011 Good afternoon, I'm researching the Great War naval history of my wife's grandfather, John Charles Jones who served on board Paulina, an armoured patrol yacht hired by the Royal Navy from the 11/9/16 to the 25/2/18 then from the 21/4/18 to the end of the war. The relevant pages in Ancestry give these basic facts but there is a family story that John was pulled out of the Med after some kind of action taking place (having spent some hours there) then taken to Malta to recover. Is there any information regarding this particular vessel which might corroborate the story ? In addition, I don’t appear to be able to find his naval record on the National Archives website although he is shown on the relevant medal rolls - are there any other avenues I could follow ? He was from Menai Bridge on Anglesey, born we think in 1888. Any help will be very gratefully received, Mike. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
