    My first Discharge Book issued Dec 1968 was R868700 when all books were renewed in 1974 my new book kept the same number.

    I hope this helps.

    2nd. Book issued in 1973 this book unlike the previous had no place for report on Conduct and Ability.
    3rd Book issued in 1985 ditto as 2nd. Book.
    Same number with the 3 books.
    Red I.D. Card issued 1978. To replace old green card.
    However the red I.D card had a validity of 5 years for some reason . Was never revalidated so assume I used a passport in place of.

    #57. As regards this post have made a few enquiries and apparently he has a very interesting past. He has written a book and is going to be loaned to me when integration resumes. So anything of interest and him agreeing and willing will put on here. Whilst making enquiries word came n that another old timer had died , and the first thought was it him, but not so. A lot of people die with a lot of information that should be put there for others to see. The problem now is the recent dead one is that his family will not be able to bury him in the usual formal manner jS

    Suggest you delete that NHI number as soon as possible, don't forget outsiders look in on this site, there may the occasional opportunist

    Hi Brendan
    I'm not sure if this helps but my Dad (Vivan Squibbs') Discharge No. was R.148708. His last ship was the M.S. Totland (O.N. 186894) and he retired on the 16th July 1969 after 42 years in the M N. He did this then to make sure he was ashore to give me away at my wedding. He first started as a cabin boy on the S.S. Ovington Court on the 4th July 1927. It was quite a new ship as built in 1924. Dad sailed out of Barry and returned to South Shields.
