Sounds a more likely scenario.
If he was RN in WW2, his service records are still with the MOD.
you can obtain a copy, cost you 30.

If no record exists, you can then pursue other avenue's.

seaweed, Thank you again.  As you say, it is now looking like WWII scenario. From another living relative [in the last few days] I learned that whilst the RN ships were being built, future officers who would take command in various  positions once commissioned, would be present on a daily basis overseeing the construction, " to learn the ins and outs of how each part of the ship would and should work correctly."
