Thank you Yvonne for working so hard on this group of men, especially Harold Walkden. You really burned the midnight oil on this one! It is really appreciated as all 39 men that worked and died on this submarine are now all reunited. It will take me a few days to add their data to form a fitting memorial.

Re Harold Walkden .... I've ended up creating his Life Story from his CWGC record ... see https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/7667505 .
However, I'm still a bit puzzled about why his information wasn't previously added to Lives, although I think it's to do with the way he's recorded in the Australian archives data.
Although he was born in Tasmania as Harold Gordon Walker (you can access his full Tasmanian birth data as a Lives "Official Record"), he enlisted under the name Harold O'Toole, but then changed his name back to Harold Walkden.
Rather confusingly, his service record is in the National Archives of Australia with covering dates of 1939-1948 ! See http://recordsearch.naa.gov.au/NameSearch/Interface/ItemDetail.aspx?Barcode=4504308 and http://recordsearch.naa.gov.au/NameSearch/Interface/ItemDetail.aspx?Barcode=5416284 . (You can access the digital images from those pages - link is in the top right hand corner.)
You may also find the Australian War Memorial record of interest at https://www.awm.gov.au/people/rolls/R1713490/ .
I'll leave you to link all those records to his Life Story.

I've added the first 6 for you ... they are a mixture of RNVR or people who enlisted in the Navy in or before 1907 ... in both cases, not included in Lives seed datasets.
Their Life Stories are now at:-
Brinjes : https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/LifeStory/7667499
I created them using the TNA Discovery catalogue entries as the source ... I'll leave it to you to add the CWGC info.
I need to look further at the 7th one. The Australian Navy records on Lives were seeded from Medal Index Cards (which is why Australian Navy shows on Lives as a subset of the British Army!). However, there is no medal card in TNA Discovery for this man/service number, so I need to investigate. Will update here as soon as I get a chance to do that.
