    Default Naval magazine with obituaries 1975?

    Does anyone know if there was a magazine or official Naval journal that published obituaries (and photos!) of deceased Naval Officers in the 1970s?
    The man I'd like to see a picture of is Alexander Walter Richards, born 1910, Commander in the Service and Supply Branch RN, OBE and winner of the Gedge medal in 1931 (It was for top marks in his accountancy exams). He died a bachelor on 29th January 1975 and was then living at South Parade, Southsea. I have all his usual info about parents and so on (he was a distant cousin of my mother), I have his probate, but I'd really like to see a picture of him and suspect an obituary might be my best bet.
    Is there a likely publication and where might I access it?

    You could try the Royal Naval Association. The website lists a Portsmouth branch with contact details.
