    Welcome David.

    So did he leave the Merchant Navy in 1957, that is the question with regard to where his CRS 10 will be held.

    If he left before 1965 then I would look here: BT 382/1155

    It can be quite confusing at times when looking for files for the Mc and the Mac at Kew. Vernon, I think you have done what we all do at times.
    David, I think this is the correct one for your father if he left after about 1965: BT 382/2665

    David said - I did sight his CRS10 many years ago, which showed his service dates and ships he sailed on.
    I suspect you are referring to his actual Dis.A book which belonged to to your father. His CRS 10 is a document at Kew that lists his ships from the era 1941-1972.

    Anyway, I would suggest you check both files out.
