Thankyou ? Cherilyn ?

Charles Thomas is an ex officer on his first voyage and a registered male nurse on his latter.Could be some clues there.

Many thanks for all your replies, this was just what I needed for my tree.

Look's like Charles Thomas Kemp died in 1961, his wife May Kemp in 1948 and their son Charles Douglas Kenneth in 1988 all died in Australia.
Still trying to trace Charles Thomas Kemp's trip back to England on his own before returning to the family in Australia in 1960.
And not sure if the son got married and had a family but would be nice to know.
My best regards Georgina :-)
