This record depicts a member of the Royal Naval Reserve [RNR] who transfers to the Royal Navy.

Transfered to RN as Stoker 2nd Class Official No [ON] C/KX 86?35 on 6.12.1933 and removed from RNR strength as from 5.12.1933.

[Can't make out the third digit but this is his official or service number and it depicts a stoker with a home port of Chatham.

RV2 and RV58 are RNR documents.

Thanks HMac.

I think the Service Number could be  C/KX  83625   .presume C prefix signifies issued at Chatham.
What do you reckon.

Yes, the C is the Home Port prefix for Chatham so you are correct.
