The album belonged to a long serving engineer officer ...Edwin A G Whittle served on a number of ships including HMS Sussex early 1930s , the ill-fated aircraft carrier HMS .Courageous during the mid 1930s and HMS Arethusa during WW2 . I have a summary of his naval record ..1928 Midshipman to 1963 when he had risen to rank of Commodore .

Edwin Whittle served on a number of ships including HMS Sussex early 1930s ...The ill-fated HMS Courageous ....mid 1930s and HMS Arethusa during WW2 .
