Help please with the name of this Captain (Royal Naval perhaps)
« on: Saturday 01 December 18 20:17 GMT (UK) »
Good evening,

Can anybody read the name of this Captain from a 1920 passenger declaration form to Canada, this captain appears to have paid my great aunt (who was a nurse) to accompany him for the voyage. "Captain Hauerch"??

Many thanks

I think it may be Hancock. It would help if you could give some details so we could go and look at the whole record.

Hancock RN - so it may be worth searching his records; you could start with the Navy List though there's a fair chance there were several Capt Hancocks!
