Remembered Today:

"Non-effective R.N.D."


Recommended Posts

I am currently researching Charles Thomas Haley who was killed when the Hospital Ship Salta hit a mine on the approach to Le Havre on 10 April 1917. A search at The National Archives revealed his medal card (BT 351/1/56310) and also the document below (ADM 339/1/15725). This seems to refer to another man, as Charles Thomas Haley was a steward with Union Castle Line, who operated Salta on behalf of the Admiralty.

Can someone enlighten me as to what the document in the illustration is and perhaps identify this CT Haley?

Thanks

David

This is Cornelius Thomas HALEY, an RNAS rating, F.13992. He was at Crystal Palace from 10 May 1916, undergoing recruit training, and was sentenced to detention for absence as shown on his RNAS ledger record here:-  https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/D6812166

 

Later served in RAF as 213992:-  https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C12260039

 

For some reason an RND Record Card (ADM 339) was wrongly raised for him at Crystal Palace under No.14148.
