Sailors (1914-1918 War) of Bethnal Green.
Recently a photo of five sailors was passed onto me following the passing of a relative.
One of the sailors is my father - born and bred in Bethnal Green . I believe that during WW1 it was common that 'call up' papers were sent out in areas, is it possible the remaining unkown sailors could be lads from Bethnal Green ?
From my father's service record he was posted to HMS Vernon on the 25th January 1915, followed by a posting to HMS Victory at Portsmouth on the 28th of January until the 20th April 1915.
One of he sailors - with a small beard - hat ribbon has the name of HMS Victory displayed. The photograph was taken at a studio in Portsmouth - date unknown.
My father served on HMS Agincourt from the 28th April 1915 until the 27th Febuary 1918 - during the Battle of Jutland.
Please don't hesitate to make contact if one of your descendant's could be one of the four unknown sailors of Bethnal Green.
I would be happy to forward - via email a copy of the photo - please make known your connection.
