Having a bitta trouble .....
« on: Friday 11 December 09 20:09 GMT (UK) »
Am I looking in the wrong place ... or is this sailor not old enough to be on those records yet ?

I'm looking for Henry Cooper born August 17th 1909 in Liverpool - years ago we had a photo and on his band it said HMS Hood .... for years we thought he had gone down with her but then I found out he didn't !! I found this sailor on the H.M.S. Hood Crew List

Cooper
H.
Able Seaman
Unknown
1923/1924
3e

and I checked Royal Naval Seamen (1853 - 1923) but I can't find him !

Could somebody point me in the right direction please !

Thanking you in advance

Annie  :)

Hi Ady !

I've found out he was still alive in the 60's ... I think he was a boy sailor and I think he was on the Hood when it was first built and went around the world on it .... I assumed he was on it WW2 ... but you know what they say when you assume !!  ::) ::)
