Hi,

I recently acquired a photo postcard of a Royal Navy sailor named Jack Pickering. He was a gunner and I'd like to know what ships he served aboard and any other relevant information regarding his service.

A gunner in the Navy was a warrant officer and so he would be on the officer's medal roll (ADM 171/91 on microfilm in alphabetical order) and listed in the Navy List. He was promoted ranks so should be found using the online service registers. Jack could be used for someone called John.
