Harry (Henry) McGann is listed as a 36 year old Chief Petty Officer at the Royal Marines Gunnery School at the time of his initiation, in 1906 into United Service Lodge No. 3124 at Sheerness. In the pre war period there are a number of years he is in arrears, where he catches up electing to pay 3 years in one go. No explicit war service is recorded but he shows arrears in the 1916 column, followed by "Drowned Dec 16."
His mother lodge is Adams Lodge No. 158, also in Sheerness having been an initiate in 1905. The connection to United Service is quick and he is seen to be Passed in that Lodge by May of the following year. He pays his dues until 1909, when the same itinerant nature is seen in the payment of subscriptions and so he is seen "31/12/1910 Excluded."
