RNR Erace?
« on: Wednesday 16 September 15 20:08 BST (UK) »
On the 1891 census the transcription states that the occupation of Henry MacKey is Fishermen RNR Erace.

Please can anyone explain what R N R Erace means?

I guess he was a fisherman and Royal Naval Reserve? However I can find no station or ship with the name Erace.
Best wishes HL

Presumably the last bit isn't simply a bad transcription of Reserve?
