Hello Stewart,
The error could have been either your grandfather or the BoT clerk who may have completed the CR1 card. As a consequence you will probably have missed his CR2. Now I cannot post the card on here as I don't think it is allowed by the rules of this site so you may be asked to remove the card you have posted. Just a heads up. The link for the CR2 is here: https://search.findmypast.co.uk/record?id=gbor%2fbt364%2f218%2f908&parentid=gbor%2fmernavsea%2fbt364%2f182962&highlights=%22%22 he was still serving up to at least 1933. If you can't find it then I will send you the card via email if you wish.

The only consequences I would guess would be for researchers looking back for his records such as we have been doing and finding cards under two discharge book numbers. It is quite clear to me that the number 1092734 belonged to another seaman.
