Gary Hall is no relation to Philip Streatfeild. He had seen a magazine ‘The Reveille 5th Plymouth Troop” magazine on the internet and because of his connection with the Sea Scouts, bought it.
Philip Streatfeild was a Commissioner in the Sea Scouts and because he was due to become the Captain of the H M S Triumph, he resigned from the Sea Scouts. He was due to sail to the China Sea on H M S Triumph but became ill after a previous injury to his scalp and so did not sail. He went to hospital in Plymouth and he was unfit to command a ship being diagnosed with arterio sclerosis.
H M S Triumph went on to Gallipoli where it was later sunk by a U Boat. A lucky escape for Philip.
The magazine was brought in to be scanned/photographed along with a ‘Silk’ from H M S Triumph.
He died in 1960.
