I'm trying to identify Jack Randle (P/JX.182172) who received a Distinguished Service Medal in 1940 for helping with evacuations at Dunkirk aboard the H.M.S Llanthony.

Having reread your post,

I assume you are doing research of a sort as you have given no detail regarding any family connection?

Hello,

I'm trying to identify Jack Randle (P/JX.182172) who received a Distinguished Service Medal in 1940 for helping with evacuations at Dunkirk aboard the H.M.S Llanthony.

I cannot request his service records because I am not next of kin. It's likely he is no longer living, but I haven't been able to figure out where/when he was born and died etc. Ultimately, I'm hoping to connect with his next of kin. Any help is appreciated.

Thank you

If you scroll just beyond halfway down there are links for General Inquirer's Forms.

Also, this link will help you understand the JX+numbers bit: http://www.godfreydykes.info/ROYAL%20NAVY%20OFFICIAL%20NUMBERS%20[RATINGS].htm

Thanks so much RRTB. Unfortunately, that form requires me to send a death certificate with the request unless the person died more than 116 years ago. That's why I'm sort of stuck.
.   Surely 25 years NOT. What you said


As I always like to say (humorously).  The Royal Navy waives the rules

Ha. If it's 116 years after death they will waive the death certificate requirement. 25 years still requires a death certificate.

I am Jack Randle's son, we have previously communicated but unfortunately my computer lost its data and i can not now contact you directly.
If you would like to contact me I can update you on the search I have subsequently carried out after looking into my Dad's service record.
Thanks,
