The name on the bells is S Skinner and the rank, not specified, looks like it should be Seaman. There was no S Skinner killed serving in the Navy during the First World War.
George Skinner came from the local area, so we think this may be referring to him. But there are other casualties named Skinner whose place of residence isn’t listed on the Commonwealth War Graves database. Please let us know if you can help with the identity of this hero.
George Skinner served on the HMS Carnation. He died when it hit a mine at the exit to Strosay Forth off the coast of Scotland and is buried at Kirkwall (St Olaf’s) Cemetery.
