Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

  1. Hello,
    I've been doing a bit of family history research and turns out there are a few relatives of mine who served in the Royal Navy. I've managed to get the more recent records online from the National Archives which is great but now I need to go further back for another relative. I was told he earned a NGS medal - so that would mean he served between 1793 - 1840; I know records for that far back aren't as easy to find as more recent records. Doing a bit of looking online I'm hoping the book "Naval General Service Medal Roll" by K. J. Douglas-Morris might provide me with a new lead!

    So I need a bit of help :)

    1: Does anyone have a copy of this book? I'd really appreciate if someone could perhaps check for a name for me?

    2: Also does anyone know whether the book lists everyone who received a NGS medal?

    Thanks in advance for any help or advice you can offer!
  2. The book you mention is compiled from info obtained from the national archives.
    Hence a search of will bring up the results you need.
    Another option is to ask over on
    You will need name and number ect.
  3. Navy Genes,

    I have access to the UK Naval Medal & Award Rolls 1793-1972 and I would be happy to search through the listings for you.
