Thomas Charles Anderson of HMS Calliope.

Sent in by Ian Chapman :   I have recently started to research my family tree, and discovered my Grandfather served on H.M.S. Calliope. I am not sure of the exact dates, but I know from my mothers birth certificate that her father, "Thomas Charles Anderson", was serving as a "Royal Navy Stoker" in June 1924.
