My great uncle HARRY GRAHAM DAVIS was born in Kettering 24/12/1900. Harry was illegitimate. When my great grandmother married she and Harry lived in Huntingdonshire. Harry joined the Navy from 1916 to 1921 (according to service record from the National Archives.) Much of this unclear to me but the following entry caught my eye.

THE SUPERINTENDENT OF POLICE, ST IVES, HUNTS INFORMED THAT DAVIS'S APPREHENSION IS (CAN'T READ NEXT WORD) AND IN CASE OFARREST TO APPLY FOR ESCORT FROM RN6 DEVONPORT NL4094/22.

My question - is there anywhere I can find further details of this incident?

Hi there,

Sounds like he was AWOL - Absent without Leave, and that if arrested he was to be handed over to the Royal Naval Police at Devonport. This is what would happen nowadays as well.
