Hi Steve.All sounds a bit 'dodgy' to me ,mate-why on earth would you want to do that,unless you have forgery in mind?....,:eek:.But then perhaps you've changed your name by Deed Poll or something in ,which case contact the MCA with your Deed Poll cert. details.

Most of us here are from a different era and wouldn't know what an MCA Discharge Book is( I presume it's the Maritime and CoastGuard Agency equivalent of our old British/U.K Seaman's Discharge Book.)
COC is of course Certificate of Competency.Certainly you'd have to contact them for changing that.
Training and Certification Branch contacts:Tel or e-mail(no counter service)
