Hi Pauline

It is very likely that he was in the Merchant Navy. His records should be at the National Archives in Kew.

My ancestor was a Master Seaman after years as a waterman.

Hi Pauline

If he was in the Royal Navy, he'd probably be on a war ship or at Portsmouth but someone who worked on a freight ship was in the Merchant Navy. I know a friend who was in the Merchant for about 8 years on freight ships.
