Naval School !
« on: Friday 26 February 21 17:07 GMT (UK) »
On Old naval records I have come across “Occupation “ stated as G H School, what does G H stand for and was this a boys naval training School?
Thank You for Any Help

Greenwich Hospital School. Presumably his father was in the Royal Navy ?

Good afternoon,

I think "GH School" is part of the address where he was born. Kingston is part of Ringwood in Hampshire. His occupation is decorator, followed by something indecipherable in brackets.

So maybe Girls High School or similar.
