Any records for Harry Coward?
« on: Sunday 17 February 19 09:50 GMT (UK) »
I am seeking more information about Harold `Harry´ Coward born in Woking Surrey, who was in the navy.
I have the file for his 12 year service record; from the G.R.O Archives - ADM/188/ 682, J. 17635; Roll NR. 00136. This has his Military Record from 21 Jun 1914 to 18 Mar 1926.

In 1939 he was not at home and I have been told that in 1941 he was still in the navy.

During his navy service he was at Gosport, Hampshire where he died 4q 1969 Gosport 6b 898.

Are there any other records from 1926 to when he left the navy after 1941?

If there are they will still be held by the Royal Navy and can be applied (and paid) for subject to the conditions.
