William Loney RN - Life and Career  

Home-Loney-Life and Career

This page contains "Addresses when on half pay" from registers, now in ADM 104, originally maintained by the Medical Director General's office. Some are obviously temporary addresses just before joining, or just after leaving, an appointment. The addresses are generally followed by one (or sometimes more) dates preceeded by either "Party" or "Lr". I assume that "Party" refers to a communication or meeting in which the address was communicated to the Admiralty, and that "Lr" refers to a letter (sent or received?).
