Commander (retired) John Bostock, (24 April, 1897 – ) served in the Royal Navy.

Life & Career

Curiously, Bostock is listed in The Times as qualifying to join two different terms at Royal Naval College, Osborne: January, 1910[1] and January, 1911.[2] I am assuming that he entered with the later term.
