I am currently searching the life and history of who I think is a distinguished RFA Master. He became a merchant seaman on leaving school and then in the 1920's joined what today is the RFA. He died in service in the 1950's after about 30 years service and according to his daughters, their mother (now deceased) received no widows pension which obviously caused acute hardship. On reading historical records about Naval pensions etc., I find it quite confusing. what would have been the entitlement at that time.
