Remembered Today:

Leading Seaman Alfred Nicholas Nash


Recommended Posts

I've been researching Leading Seaman Alfred Nicholas Nash, KIA 31/5/1916 on HMS Black Prince, I have visited Kew and found his service record but it does not tell me what his position/trade was on board ship, he joined the navy in 1905 as a Boy Sailor and progressed through a number of large ships and shore bases until his death at Jutland with the sinking of HMS Black Prince, after 5 years of piecing his details together I've drawn a complete blank regarding his trade.

Anyone got any fresh ideas?

Steve, you may already have this, but ;

NASH Alfred Nicholas, Leading Seaman, No. 237427

D.o.B ; 140990 P.o.B ; Brighton, Sussex

ADM 188 / 421 - available `on line' for £3.50

L/S ; he could be L.T.O - Leading Torpedo Operator / G.S - Gunner Seaman / or `just' seaman with no special duty. Suggest you get, if you do not have already, the ADM Document from PRO, that may give the info you require.
