Claude Alwyn Bartlett was born in Luton, Bedfordshire in July 1895 and entered the Royal Naval Air Service in November 1914, when he was rated Petty Officer Mechanic. As verified by his service record, he served in Armoured Cars from April 1915 until March 1916, in which period he was ‘slightly wounded in action about 5 September 1915 in the Dardanelles’, while a member of 9th Armoured Car Section. He appears to have been pensioned ashore on his return to the U.K.
