Note: Joseph Noble died on the 5th January 1928 at the Prince of Wales Hospital Randwick. According to the contents of a letter from the NSW State Trustees Office, Noble also had home service as a Private in the Australian Army Medical Corps.
Further information is given on a medical form (in his AIF record) stating “Was at the bombardment of Alexandria 1881 and Boxer Rebellion”. The AWM has Noble Able Seaman Noble embarking on the SS Salamis and returning on the SS Chingtu. The China medal roll states his medal was sent to the “C in C Australia 6 Feb 03”. Due to the Australian government not issuing all the China medals at this stage we are unsure if his medal was actually presented to him.
Looking further into the Royal Navy records there appears to be a J. Noble on the HMS Monarch for the Sudan campaign listed as the “Asst. Engr” which could possibly be him however this would make him ten years old (roughly) going off his enlist age given in the first world war. Further research is required.
