I have recently purchased a Memorial Plaque for John Edwin Anthony 546TS R.N.R., he served as a trimmer aboard H.M.Trawler Drumtochty and lost his life on Sunday 5th March 1916. John is buried in Dunkirk Town Cemetery. A second man William James Harwood 8972DA a deckhand also died on that Sunday, his body was never recovered. They both have "cause of death other than disease, accident or enemy action" on their reports. Would the cause or reason for their deaths be recorded on their service papers? So far I've been unable to find any record of a ship's log for HMT Drumtochty at the TNA. Any help or pointers on where I might be able to get any information would be gratefully received.
