Wow, thanks everyone, for your replies, I did a bit of research and found he was born in India. and he served in merchant navy prior to Royal Navy.
He served on another RN ship.
I did also find a marriage, but as you say no death record, perhaps he died overseas, highly likely these days.
Also I could find no children on a very quick search the other day, but working all sorts of shifts at mo, so not had a lot of time.
And yes HMS Picotee website does belong to me, have done a lot of research on her and would dearly love a photo of all crew. I am currently writing a book of her and the crew. so again if anyone knows of any familes of her crew members that would be fantastic. I am in contact with some. I have some time off soon, so will have to pop to kew!!!
Thanks so much everyone again, I will use info you have given for my records, and book, good luck with your researches, I am in Woolwich, so if I can help with anything let me know.
:-) Debra
