|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.
