Leading Stoker J Long, Royal Navy

Chailey Parish Magazine first notes J Long in October 1915, recording him as a Leading Stoker serving aboard HMS Glory.  In January 1918 the magazine notes that he is at Royal Navy Barracks and this information is then repeated up to and including the final published roll in July 1919. 

This man could possibly be Walter J or J Walter Long.  There is a Walter Long who features in Chailey Parish Magazine from November 1914 to September 1915 inclusive.  He then disappears and J Long appears from October 1915.  I have been unable however, to find a convincing naval service record match for either J Long, Walter Long or any combination of J Walter / Walter J Long.
