Family :

Husband of Edith Rogers, of 10, Central Avenue, Waltham Cross, Herts.

Service Life:


Unit / Ship / Est.: HMS Pembroke 

In WW1, HMS PEMBROKE, as well as being the Royal Naval barracks at Chatham, hosted a number of Accounting Bases (pay and admin offices - HMS PEMBROKE I, PEMBROKE II, etc) which handled men at a number of ships and shore establishments. However, a man wearing a PEMBROKE cap tally is more likely than not to have been actually serving in the Chatham Barracks. Many thousands of RN and RNR stokers will have passed through the barracks during WW1 either as ship's company or on courses.

Pembroke was also the name given to the base ship at Chatham; from Sep 1905 to Jun 1917 it was the former HMS Trent of 1877, an Iron Screw Gunboat, then from Jul 1917 to Feb 1920 it was the former HMS Nymphe of 1888, a Composite Screw Sloop.

Pembroke (I) - accounting base (shore establishment) at Chatham.
Pembroke (II) - Royal Naval Air Station at Eastchurch between 1913 and 1918.
