Did he enter service as a Boy on the record, if so parent's consent would be needed. Not sure if consent was need if they were over 18. On all my records from ADM139 where the person is under 18 and enters as a Boy the following wording is given which leads me to think consent over 18 was not needed.
This is just part of the wording "The consent of his parents or friends has been obtained in writing and they are willing and desirous that the boy should be entered for 10 years continuous and general service from the age of 18 in addition to whatever periods may be necessary till he attains that age; and the boy himself is willing and desirous to enter the Royal Navy under these conditions as attested by his signature attached hereto."
