Default HMS Pembroke 1930's

My grandfather Hector Bishop served in the Royal Navy from 1915 until demob in 1939. First as a boy sailor on HMS Ganges and finally on the training ship HMS Pembroke 111. I have his naval record and ships he served on including HMS Centaur who saw action in June 1917 sinking a German torpedo boat. None of the family knew him and my Dad had a three minute conversation with him in 1940 and that was that. Any information on him during his stay on Pembroke would be very interesting. He also served on the Royal Oak 1927-1928
