  1. According to his service record (if this is the same Horace Theodore Thomas, born Woolwich, born April 1895), he never served on HMS Edgar; only ever posted to HMS Pembroke then the Vanguard.

    1. Hi WyS, that’s interesting. On searching CWGC again, using Horace rather than ‘H T’ I found a second Horace Thomas, 1st Class Stoker, who was died whilst on HMS Victory X in 1918. This man lived in Hollington so must be his portrait above. I will update his details. Thank’s for pointing this out, I’ll be more thorough with my research going forward!
