Hello! I'm searching for a Royal Navy PO who was stationed in HMCS Stadacona in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada approximately 1961-1964. His name is William H. Black, I have his Chiefs and PO's Membership Card.
Here is the information I have:

Born: approx. 1931 (+/- 5 years)
Service Number: P/MX 890778
Arrived or departed Stadacona on the HMS Auriga
Served on the HMS Maidstone/Dreadnought in 1965
Received an RN Long Standing or Good standing award/payment in November 1965

I've attached the images of the documents I have. I believe his records at TNA are closed until 2032. I've reached out to related Facebook groups, searched the National Archives collections & Ancestry.com, and contacted the Submariners Associations in Canada.

Does anyone have advice on where else to look? Or happen to have spent time in Stadacona during this time?

Thank you!

A.F.O's were replaced by D.C.I's in the 1960's.   Copies of AFO's are now held by the National Archives at Kew

Greetings All
     I wonder is there any place or even a collector who would be able to tell me what one of the AFO's mentioned, I have been looking for this particular AFO for many years, but as we all know these are a thing of the past, and I guess dead and buried, in my time in the Navy I had access to AFO's on a daily bases, but what happened to these when they were no longer required,
Any help would be most appreciated as to a place or collector,
Tom Grant
