Please add a life story for Ernest Henry Dunn, RN Canteen manager HMS Marlborough

Born 1 Feb 1893 Millbrook, Plymouth
He was a civilian canteen manager in the RN before the NAFFI was created and so did not have a service number. Even though he was a civilian he was awarded medals for his service on board ship, AMD 171/133.
The medal roll shows than he served on board the Dreadnought class battleship HMS Marlborough. From this ship he moved to The Empress of India and was then discharged from service 9 June 1922.
ADA171/133 medal roll can be seen on Ancestry:
