I was expecting your query to have been answered by now. So here's my input for you.

QSA Roll ADM/171/53 QSA Roll for RN and RM - HMS Gibraltar

Only 1 Wainwright listed on Roll page 290 (pdf file page 275 of 376):

No 9960 Wainwright CS; Rank Pte; medal No 1359, no clasps.

WWI RM Medal Roll ADM 171/171 NCOs & Men surnames She-Z

Only one Wainwright listed on Roll page page 346 (pdf file page 354 of 606)

Wainwright Chas S, Pte, No CH [Chatham] 14043, Awarded the 1914 Star, British War & Victory Medals that were issued to him [self] whilst on HMS Endeavour.

The clasp for the 1914 Star with inscription, 5th Aug.-22nd Nov.1914, was issued to the Army & Naval personnel (who served ashore) AND actually came under fire.

Note the reference to pdf files is that both those piece numbers are free to download from the NA’s website as very large pdf files – from http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/catalogue/Default.asp?j=1 type the ADM 171 number in the “type reference here” box click “go to reference” and follow the instructions.

There are also two records at the National Archives, Kew obtained via http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/records/our-online-record... > Marines.

I believe one will show his original service & number and his discharge to the Royal Fleet Reserve (different number) and the other is for his recall from the RFR for WWI hence the different number.
