    While following the children of a cousin -3x. I find them on the I o W.
    A G'son is listed with Mother & G'Mother plus 1. His rating & number is given & H.M.S which was a mine sweeper.
    Living at 20 Yarborough Cottages, Green Rd. on the island near St. Helens, is his living at home the reason why his details could be given? I'd have thought mention of HMShips was a no-no.

    I took a wander along Upper Green rd of course but when I asked for specifics google spun out & took me on a mad cab ride all over. I did initially find the cottages- I think but not the number.

    The National Archives gives this explanation in their blurb:

    3.2 Exceptions and anomalies among armed forces personnel
    Registration of members of the armed forces was dealt with by the military authorities, so the 1939 Register does not include service personnel in military, naval and air force establishments. Nor does it include members of the armed forces billeted in private homes, including their own homes. However, since conscription did not begin in earnest until January 1940, most people who subsequently served in the armed forces during the Second World War were still civilians in September 1939.

    The records do include

    • members of the armed forces on leave
    • civilians on military bases
    Therefore, maybe he was one of those on leave?

    Oh dang! thanks Jan, I missed that one. 3.2 didn't come up where I looked. yep it did but the last bit ????

    Pardon, I intended to include this, but evidently missed. busy time here.
    tna_r39_2652_2652d_003 ...I so wish those annoying little red squiggles would dissipate. :(
    Why tho' would his rank & ship be named, too early to be a worry?
