    Hi Everyone, I am researching a soldier - David Hutton:-
    Lieutenant
    HUTTON, DAVID
    Service Number 243456
    Died 21/09/1943
    Aged 24
    83 Field Regt. attd. 50 Bty., 24 Field Regt. Royal Artillery
    Buried at SALERNO WAR CEMETERY

    - and want to tell the story of his family as well, but on the 1939 Register, at the side of his father's name was (“Calyx” Coaster Dis. 29th September 1939 PT4004), so I am wondering what sort of vessel this was and also I think his father had been in the Merchant Navy if this belongs to him:-
    David John Hutton in the Web: UK, WWII Medals Issued to Merchant Seamen, 1939-1945

    Name: David John Hutton
    Birth Date: 6 Dec 1892

    The 1939 Register Transcription:-
    1939 Register
    Hutton Household (6 People)
    59 Dee View Road , Connah's Quay U.D., Flintshire, Wales
    Ida A Hutton 17 Nov 1893 Female Unpaid Domestic Duties Married 19 1
    David J Hutton 06 Dec 1891 Male Mercantile Marine (Master) Married 19 2 (“Calyx” Coaster Dis. 29th September 1939 PT4004).
    So I am wondering if the father also went to war as well?
    I hope you can understand all this!
    Any help would be great. Regards, Mavis Williams

    Thank you so much CL1, at least I know that the comment was about a ship and subsequent research shows that David John Hutton was a Sailor, so this fits. Thank you again, Mavis
