Lawryleslie Posted 3 February , 2018 Share Posted 3 February , 2018 A friend has asked me to help trace the military history of her father, Stoker 1st Class George Hedley Charles Revell K19171 born in Noss Mayo in 1895. I have found most of his service records, including medals, on Ancestry.com. However she was told by her late mother that her father was torpedoed and spent 19 hours in the water before being rescued from which he subsequently suffered tuberculosis and died in 1938. Looking through his Record of Seaman’s Service, none of the ships he served on during WW1 appear to have been torpedoed and all survived the war. She is insistent that the story of her father is true and not an embellished family anecdote. Can any forum pals help to solve this mystery?
