CR10s are the central index cards to the Register of Seamen.

Yes and yes to your questions re the photos.

C.R.10 cards are Merchant Navy records which form part of the Fourth Register of Seamen otherwise known as the Central Index Register. This series was a special index created by order of the Defence of the Realm Act 1918. The cards were introduced in 1918 and dropped in 1921. The cards usually but not always show a photo of the seaman.

Yes, he is wearing a bow tie in the other photo.

Actually he has 1 x CR 10 card, 2 x CR1 cards and importantly 1 x CR2 card which show his service up to 1940 so he actually served in both wars.

There is a list of numbers which might be the ships on reply 9

I don't know where he was in 1921 but he was still in Newport from his marriage in 1926 until his death in 1954


The ship numbers mentioned in the above link relate to the following ships.

121011 GERMANIC 9.12.1919
121011 GERMANIC 1.1920 
120645 WILLESDEN 6.1920
143110 WITHINGTON 5.8.1921

I would keep any MN information on this thread rather than mix the two up.
