    Default The Navy List, August 1914

    I picked up an old copy of the Navy List dated August 1914.

    It lists Officers and some senior Warrant Officers, seniority, ships and other odd bits and pieces. Many Libraries and record offices will keep a partial run of the Navy List, but it isn't always possible for everyone to get there.

    So, if anyone with Naval ancestors at the outbreak of the Great War would like a look up, just reply to this message.

    Hi Geoffers
    I'm ashamed to say that I'm not too up on ranks, but my Grandfather Henry Charles Haselgrove was promoted from PO 1st Class to Acting CPO around 1914. Would that be too junior??
    Regards

    [I'm ashamed to say that I'm not too up on ranks, but my Grandfather Henry Charles Haselgrove was promoted from PO 1st Class to Acting CPO around 1914. Would that be too junior??]

    Depends on what he did, some Warrant Officers e.g. Boatswains and Carpenters are included, others are not.

    I've checked for your grandfather - sorry to say he's not included.

    Hi Geoffers
    Thanks anyway, it was worth a try. My GrandDad was into Torpedoes: surface launched, not from Subs.

    Default Re Ww1 Rn Lookup

    Hi Geoffers.

    My grand father Edward Joseph Stafford joined the RN in 1910 - registered number RN- K5697. He was an Australian and was loaned to the R.A.N. for the duration of WW1. He served on the HMAS Australia and ended up a PO Stocker. I would appreciate a lookup on your list to see if he is there.

    Regards, MichaelD

    Sorry, no trace. Ships in the service of the 'Dominion Government of Australia' are listed, ERAs are included, but not P.O. Stokers.

    I am looking for JOHN LAWRENCE KERSLAKE, who believed to have joined Navy 1901 aged 18. Believe he had some connection with HMS LOUVAIN pre 1915 or just after it was commandeered by RN in 1915. I have a photo of him in "Whites" with three stripes on left sleeve. Do you know what this means? also believe he was something to do with Armourers Crew. Can you help?
    Many thanks
