Title: Naval Document Of Great Grandfather
Post by: HM1992 on Tuesday 02 November 21 23:34 GMT (UK)
Hello,

Hopefully someone will be able to help me with this, as my grandmother would call it chicken scratch  ;D

I can read the top bar and make out the names of the ships and the dates. The writing on the right I can't decipher and the bottom I've managed to get this so far...

First Line - “Deserted – 25th September 1920 *illegible* Constance *illegible*
Second Line - *illegible* Please inform eng section *illegible*
Third Line - *illegible* E/56439

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you  :)

Edit - sorry link to image didn't work, uploaded it now.

At the bottom, from the middle line's final words:

...on any further
posting of this man [being?] [?]        Quote    E/56439


In the first line:  ...S165 Constance [A288204?]


One of the entries at the right is:

War Gratuity Paid
H M S Conqueror
List 15/2

Thank you both! Sorry it took so long to reply, caught the horrible cold going around. This gives me more to research!
