Submitted by John Peter Moss

John Dale was John Peter’s Father.

Father served with the Royal Naval Division.
Served on "Q" ship trawlers Gunner & Duster, also on D.A.Ms I haven't found any ship names as yet, mum always said he was shipwrecked 3 times.
I found 1 instance Duster was being towed for repair but broke away in a storm then went aground near Travose Head in Cornwall.

He also survived WW2 where he served in the Royal Air Force, Barrage Balloons round Sheffield.
Born at Heeley, Sheffield in 1898, he survived the war and died in later life Abt. 1968.
