Coast guards

Postby KayFarndon » Sat Aug 31, 2019 10:11 am

My grandfather was a coast guard posted in Hampshire at Needs Ore, Beaulieu around 1904 and later on in Mablethorpe around the 1920's, after which he went back to the south coast.

I do not seem to be able to find any publications or photographs of coast guards and am hoping there will be a forum user who can advise or help me in my research on this subject matter.

Do coast guards have service records? I have one photograph which was taken around 1920 and this is the only one of my grandfather in a naval uniform. He had served as a sailor previously and he was Thomas Davies 1872-1950. A very common Welsh name, so not an easy task for research, although I do know most of his life and whereabouts.

Needs Ore is now a private birdwatching site. There is a website, just type in Needs Ore Beaulieu. They may be able to help you with the history or point you in the right direction.
