In the 1851 census, John is an 83 year old patient at the Greenwich Hospital and he is a Widower. There are 2 medal citations and I wonder if there are any available online sources for specific members of the U.K. Navy regarding the following events: Event - Battle of Trafalgar Ship - Ajax Award - Naval General Service Medal and Event - Napoleonic Wars Ship - Ajax Award - Naval General Service Medal. At the time of these Campaigns, he was an A.B. seaman. I am aware that the Battle of Trafalgar was in October 1805 and that the Napoleonic Wars were fought during the years 1803-1815. She was lost in a fire on the night of 14 February 1807, during the Dardanelles Operation. He was one of about 380 members of the crew that were rescued and again I wonder if he was injured and then hospitalised or whether he continued to serve in the Navy His wife - Ann - died Jul-Sep q. 1838 in Bradpole, Dorset. I don't have her death cert. so cannot tell if the informant was John or not and since I can't find any reference To John in the 1841 census, I am curious as to whether he was hospitalised in 1841. Any ideas on how to proceed would be much appreciated.
