Through a roundabout route,I discovered that a relative I had not previously known of had been at the Royal Naval College, Greenwich.
Having already promoted him to admiral,I very proudly,downloaded his naval records.
Oh yes,he was at the college on the 1901 census.It did not take him long to be dismissed the service for desertion after that though!
