RICHARD COWLING.. I have been trying to find information regarding my father's family as he has lost touch with them.  my sister has a post card from his brother with a photo of 3 sailors and the only clue we have is that he was serving 1909 on the HMS Russell.  His name was Richard Cowling and he would have been in his late teens at that time.  My father James Richmond Cowling also served during the First World War in the Royal Navy and I have been trying to find out more about my father's family.  Contact Here
