Lieutenant Commander Arthur Edward Kitchener Green RNVR

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone have information on the naval career of Lieutenant Commander Arthur Edward Kitchener Green RNVR, he was the late father of a friend of mine and she has no information on his naval career during the Second World War. He was born on the 17th March 1912 or 1915.


  2. He should have been called Patrick.
  3. Has the lady applied for her late father's service record, Paul?
  4. Your friend doesn't know what year her father was born in? It's not that hard to find out...
  5. If you look at some of the copperplate script used on things like, duh, birth certificates, you'll find it is sometimes VERY difficult to read letters or numbers. I can never remember when my parents were born, obviously I know 'ish' but I have to think about it.
  6. Thanks all, this forum is excellent. Excuse my ignorance but could someone explain why he should have been called Patrick.

  7. Just as an aside, Paul, the gentleman may well have been listed in the Navy List, which is accessible via some libraries, however the wartime editions were heavily edited, so may not be a particularly useful source.

    The unedited wartime versions do exist, but the copies of them are held in hard copy at Kew.
  8. I'm interested in knowing that one as well.
  9. Edited because post below me actually has a good reason

  10. Or 17th March being the feast day of the aforementioned sanctified person, if he ever existed.
  11. Senior Member LujonSA, I am an amateur researcher and I hope that we have a common purpose in that we keep the memory alive. Please explain your comment.

  12. The 17th of March (Lt Cdr Green's birthday) is St Patrick's Day.

  16. I believe he was some sort of a poster boy during WW1. I always knew him as Lord but my memory's not what it was.
