I would be grateful if anyone is able to help me in trying to understand my great grandfathers Naval Record. I would particularly be interested in trying to work out what the following refer to; [List and No.] [Sub-ratings and badges], [ratings] assume this refers to rank, [Character] am assuming VG means Very Good. What do items in [Ceased] refer to? If there are any other points of interest on his record that are worth knowing that would be useful. I have his service record in PDF format which I am happy to E-mail. I have attached JPG files but the quality is poor and hard to read.
Thanks in advance
