Hello im new to this site and hope you dont mind me asking for help with what is my first real post here.
The attached photos came into my families possession recently and the man in the photo is supposedly a relative as yet he is unknown to us, all my father can remember is he may have been from the East Yorkshire/Hull region
I was wondering although the photo is poor quality if you could help me with some questions i have
Can someone confirm if the cap badge is P&O ?
Is it possible to tell what era this is from
Other photos i have seen online showing a similar cap and badge have the cap with a white top,his is not would this indicate anything such as his ranking ??
many thanks for taking the time to view this post
regards
Allan

White covers were put on the cap when they were in the tropics,nothing to do with rank.
