Very sorry to hear about your loss.

Pending the arrival of someone who can explain how naval posting records work, I believe these are all shore establishments.

Clearly your father did serve overseas, as I believe HMS Nile was the Naval Base Alexandria in that period. RNAH Alexandria would be Royal Naval Auxiliary Hospital.

According to this link, 64 General Hospital was in Alexandria 1939-44: British General Hospitals - Scarlet Finders

Good luck!

You're welcome! Again pending arrival of the experts, the MX prefix to the number covered a number of trades. Could he have been a Sick Berth Attendant (SBA) - now Medical Assistant?
Thank You.
I believe from one of the last conversations I had with him, he was a CPO retired but you are correct that he was also an SBA. The Navy Command has given me very littleto go on.
He was until his death a very active member of St. Dunstans (now Blind Veterans UK)
