More about Michael Malone

Michael Malone was born in Edinburgh and was married to Mrs Louisa Malone of 3 Peel Street, Lochee, Dundee. He joined the Royal Navy as a Boy in 1899 and trained onboard HMS Caledonia in the Forth. He served on a number of ships and left the Royal Navy as a leading Seaman in 1913, and was enrolled into the Royal Fleet Reserve. He was involved in the trial Mobilisation in July 1914 and took part in the Fleet Review onboard HMS Prince George. After the outbreak of war he spent time in the Naval Barracks in Portsmouth before being drafted to the destroyer HMS Milne, part of a flotilla based on HMS Dido at Harwich. He took part in the Battle of the Dogger Bank in January 1915. In April 1916 he joined the old battleship HMS Agamemnon in the Eastern Mediterranean and served with her for a year. He was then drafted to HMS Pembroke 1, which is an accounting base for Chatham Seaman Ratings and also for Auxiliary Patrol Base vessels. In 1918, he was admitted to the Royal Naval Hospital in Great Yarmouth and died from illness, probably pneumonia. Michael Malone is buried in the Great Yarmouth (Caister) Cemetery, Norfolk.
