My grandmothers brother Nathan Colton is in a photo in uniform wearing the HMS Implacable, I think he may have been a stoker during WWI, as this side of the family was never really mentioned. I am trying to discover as much as I can.

Many thanks,

My father served as a stoker on this ship in WWI. He was 18 yrs old when he joined the ship in 1916 serving until the end of 1917 before transferring to another ship. I have found his records in the National Archives, but does anyone know if photographs are kept anywhere of crew members from this time.

Many thanks,

I have been trying to find out some info on my great uncle's son, who served on the HMS Implacable (battleship) during WW1. I have done a lot of searching using the Internet, but generally have come very little - if you could find his Royal Navy Service No. it would be of help.
His details are as follows:

William Stanley Thomas
born 1898/1899 Falmouth Cornwall England.
His father's name was John Thomas (who served on the Nile Expedition) and his mother was Mary Emerline Thomas.

Warm Regards,
