Having struggled for ages to find the MIC, I am not able to make out the ship that he served on. Seems to be a P&O ship but I don't have enough knowledge to get the name of it.

He then goes on to the Inland Waterways Transport section of RE

Thanks Aled

That seems to fit the bill, and it was a WW1 transport.

Bennett was off to Inland Water Transport in late 1916, so avoid the later torpedoing of that ship in 1917.

Apart from your post on Google (3 minutes to index it) I get nothing for that !

Thanks IPT.

My state of play with him is - click here - a man with a name like John Bennett is always difficult to track, and as a mariner he misses many censuses

Thanks - you are a kind, patient man :blush:

I should get better at these MMR men. The Auxiliaries in Mar 1921 started a company to "police" shipping so there are probably up to 100 of them taken on.
