The Royal Navy’s official published Lists are often one of the best ways to trace an officer's career in the British Services. The Navy Lists include details of where the officer served, their rank, seniority date and decorations. Units covered include Royal Naval Reserve R.N.R., Royal Marines R.M., Royal Naval Voluntary Reserve R.N.V.R. and Queen Alexandra’s Royal Naval Nursing Service Q.A.R.N.N.S.. If you need a definitive answer as to whether someone served, their rank or medals held at a particular time then these lists will give you that information.
This list is fully transcribed with all abbreviations and terms clarified, therefore making it easily searchable.
Period covered: 1940
