The link is to a "Seamans Pouch" It is the only one that comes up using the search "Forte A" There is nothing using the search "Forte T"

If it is the correct person, his service records should be in the piece BT382/2355 at the National Archives. http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C10990579
You would be best advised to visit Kew in person or appoint a researcher.

dbree, i have no idea where he was born or when. i reckon this is a guess around 1935 as he and my dad where pals in the navy . the reason i say 1935 is this is the year my dad was born. tony may have been born in Ireland or got irish citizenship. i have a photo of him and my dad on the ship but know nothing else about tony.
