do u think it might be easier looking for his ww2 records as he served in both wars. This is the first time for me looking for navy or air force records so not sure how to go about it :confused:
Hi Ange,

There is a downloadable document for Bertram at the [URL="http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documentsonline/navy.asp"]TNA[/URL]. Fee to download is £3.50.

Go to Registers of Seamans Services and click on search.

Hi Tiddy...nice link here and the Argus is under British Warships,indeed it was the first ever Aircraft carrier built in Britain....there is a messege board on here for people and there you could maybe leave a message on the board under the photos of the carrier....if you look at the site there are photos of some of the men who served on the Argus as well.

All the best with it.
