Jack kept a book about his service with the company and from the cover I have produced the service record shown above.


I traced further records from the Crew Lists section.


Jack was clearly one of the many long service Petty Officers that were so valuable to the officers aboard the mailships. They were the most loyal of “company men” who were always utterly reliable and ready to give discrete advice to junior officers when they thought it was necessary.
