His occupation stated that he was a "GREENWICH SCHOOL BOY"
Name: Joseph Henry Peter HILL
Born: January 1906 in Plymouth
At this time his father, Joseph, was described as
a wood dealer, and earlier censuses describe his occupations as Farm labourer, General labourer and General dealer with no indication of any naval link. As he did not die until after 1936, we are puzzled how and why his son should have been a "Greenwich School Boy"
We understand that Greenwich School Boys, prior to 1933, the Royal Greenwich Hospital School was sited in Greenwich, South East London.
We also understood that he had lived his early life, until the early 1950s in Plymouth, apart from his naval service from 1924 -1927 and again from 1940 - 1945
Does anyone have any further information as to why or how he came to be described as a "Greenwich School Boy", or where we could find any relevant records.
