Dear colleagues,

I would greatly appreciate your help in clarifying two dates in the Service record - circled in red below.

I think it's 30 May 18 and 31 May 18, but I'm not sure..

Thank you!

That is how I read it.

Agree with Horatio.

Hello Liopa - I expect you are aware this rating (an ancestor?) had some conduct problem resulting in a loss of his GCB's?

Hello RNCVR, yes, thank you! Very interesting (and probably sad) - 0 GCBs after 11 years of service... He got them back in 1915-1917, correct?

Yes, his 3rd GCB awarded 2/8/17, somewhat a faint entry but I think that is the date.

Hobday never progressed beyond AB ( Able Seaman), I expect by choice.

Not exactly, he had lost his 2 GCB's 14/8/05, then 1 Restored on 3/2/15 (during wartime), then 2nd GCB Granted 1/1/16. He cleaned up his act during wartime.

I don't expect his offenses were really serious as he was never relegated to 2nd class for Conduct & no cell/jail time noted.
