1919 photo from Seaman's card

Leave Book has him as JH Cooper. There are merchant marine certs for James Hedley Cooper b1888 (cert 1910) and John Henry Cooper b1892 (cert Oct 1918). James Hedley Cooper can be ruled out as he served with Indian Marines and RE in WW1, and had a rank. So looking at John Henry Cooper, and RIC gaives him as John Henry Cooper b 2 Jun 1892.
