Gilbert Wallis is 1st Lieutenant, not 2nd. So no clash with Israel Stafford.


Posted by Rebecca Tollfree on Saturday 23rd of October 2021 15:47

In your book "Royal Navy Officers of the Seven Year War" Israel STAFFORD is mentioned as being 2L betwenn 13.4.1726 - 25.7.1728. Here it says Gilbert WALLIS was 2L between these dates. Which one is correct? Or are they both correct? Thanks
