    Default Help with an occupation please

    I am doing some research for a maternal cousin into her paternal side. Her father was in the Royal Navy which may have been his national service. He bought himself out to marry in 1955 and then joined the Metropolitan Police.

    The 1955 marriage certificate gives his occupation as "M.E.I. RN". My thoughts would be that this might be mechanical engineer or similar but I'm not sure he was a practical man in that sense so would appreciate any other/better ideas please.

    I did 'Google' this but it didn't help ..............

    Thank you!

    As you say, difficult to find anything definite. The closest I can come is Marine engineer, see here

    Doesn't seem to involve practical physical work as such but finding a way for others to fix it as in - Engineers take scientific knowledge and convert it into technology, and then take that technology and convert it into a working solution/innovation

    Hi

    Could it be Marine Engineer (Class) 1?

    My thanks to both of you. The chap was quite a practical man and although I wouldn't have labelled him an 'engineer' it does seem likely. I will ask the family member who knew him if it makes sense to them.
