Naval Records for Bruce Richard McLean Edmonds

Query by Andy1969

I've been searching for any Service Records on Bruce Richard McLean Edmonds. All I know is that he was killed in January 1941 whilst serving as a Leading Seaman on board HMS Southampton in the Mediterranean. Aside from that I've been unable to find anything about his time in the service, or when/where he signed up. Can anyone help at all...?

All the best

Thank you, again. I find it baffling that there's info on his death but seems to be little, if nothing, else.

All the best
