Re: Trying to follow an alias
Karen, Thank you for this comment. I had wandered if the 2 references to John Woods on the Royal Naval ships refer to the same guy or not. Looking up what 'landsman' meant it seems to imply the lowest of the low ranked
seaman, and if it were the same chap surely after 10 years he would now be described as 'ordinary seaman'.
