There was something about the service number. I couldn't read it then and I couldn't read it now. His brother being Michael.

Can you help with this one please? I am hoping that he would qualify if he was discharged with liver cancer. Can you help please?

Good man Paul, that's great. Thank you very much indeed, now if we can find his records we would be laughing.

 Kind regards.

Great news Tom. Still looking for Foley but it seems a fruitless pursuit.

It has been made so thanks to the help of everyone here lads and lassies. I always said it, and am privileged to work with ye. It was never ever possible without you all. Foley is a strange one, but I will remember him with the Irish lads one way or the other.

Think I have had enough. Tried tracing his wife who died between 1901 and 1911, Possibly died 1906 but could be another Julia altogether. Daughter, also Julia, born c1889 leads nowhere

I can feel your frustration Mark, sometimes it is best to let the hair settle.

 Thanks again for all your help.

 Kind regards.

Mark, this sounds mad, but when I posted your link in the email I could see the image. If I post the link in the address bar it asks me to join ancestry. Mad as a brush eh?

This chap may be a possible. Trying to confirm

https://search.findmypast.co.uk/record?id=GBM%2FADM29%2F11562%2F00263&parentid=GBM%2FGREP%2FADM29%2F00132191

edit

There is a family tree on ancestry. Indicates he was born 26/4/1868 in Aghada.This does not match the dob on the record of 15/6/1867

A Charles Walsh of Aghada was on HMS Duke of Wellington on the 1901 census (Portsmouth?) and on HMS Swiftsure (in the Med) in 1911, 

472 above link was on these ship at the correct time as can be seen on the record

So looks likely he is the man and was pensioned off as insane in 1912. 

This appears to be a memorial to him in Aghada - towards the bottom died 3.16 aged 48walsh.jpg.cdb329aaa2796843ea327673a3419004.jpg

Great stuff Mark, that is brilliant, 1868 sounds just perfect. Thank you very much indeed.

Sadly, he was discharged before the war, dang it anyway.

 Thanks again for the help Mark.

Sorry lads and lassies, I posted one lad Trimby but found him straight away listed under T instead of H T Trimby, so I deleted it. In case you are wondering.

Morning Tom

Nothing turning up I'm afraid. Checked google for 'donkey man' and it says responsibilities in the engine room so possibly stoker?

That turns up two...who were still alive in 1916.

 

Still ferreting
