I am trying to understand some information on a relatives Naval record 1920-1928.
He arrived from the RN and then transferred after 2 years to the RAN and then married and stayed in Australia til his death 1951.
It would seem the original information on his record was minimal as he was originally on loan from the RN. I can decipher various additions of notes over the 8 year period by the handwriting and it would seem his personal information eg date and place of birth etc was added at the time of his repatriation in 1951.
Other records I have seen have been a bit more straight forward than this one. I am wondering if it was not initially added as he was on loan originally from RN and the data may not have seemed important until repatriation. Is this usual?
There are two notes I am particularly interested in understanding and am wondering if experienced members have seen such notes or can shed some light on types of notes added to Defence Service documents.
On the first page top right corner there have been three words written, I believe at the repatriation time by the handwriting, but they are difficult to understand. It looks like 'Trade Glove Webber - odd but the last word suggests a persons surname and I don't know what else a note like this could reference.
On the second page in the lower right corner there is a note in another handwriting in blue ink and this appears to read:
'Letter to Solicitor NSW Feb 74 or 94 (difficult to tell) 92/40/766NP'
I would greatly appreciate any member who can explain these record queries.
