Another successful addition. Well done to all concerned!

That is the very fella George, nicely found!! Thank you for all your help. Sorry George, these naval lads are so difficult to find. So far it does not show any war service, perhaps it will turn up later.

Kind regards.

 Tom.

Nicely found, George thank you! I am sorry that he will not qualify, but he was entitled to a chance anyway. he will be remembered with the other Irishmen that do not qualify.

Thanks again George, you are brilliant with these Naval lads, I dont know how you do it.

Kind regards.

 Tom.

His Irish will card says Captain RAMC retired. So probably not a candidate

Half way down on left.

Appears to have been promoted to Temp Capt 6/11/16

So no luck I am afraid
