Writing isn't very clear is it!

In the Cause box I think it says:-  Transferred to R.N. as stoker? 2nd Class followed by ref. nos., then on 6.12.33 Removed? from Rnk? strength? as from 5th December 1933.

There are quite a lot of reference numbers and letters which would mean something to those in the know!!  ::)

The rest of it I find hard to read.  Maybe someone else can.
Ashford: Somerset, London
England: Devon, London, New Zealand
Holdway: Wiltshire
Hooper: Bristol, Somerset
Knowling: Devon, London
Southcott: Devon, China
Strong: Wiltshire
Watson: Cambridgeshire
White: Bristol
Windo - Gloucestershire, Somerset, Wiltshire

Some of the codes may be wrong.
