    If he does have a Service Number, it's not listed in Air 78.

    He does feature in a passenger manifest on the Pacific Steamship Company ship 'Orduna', arrving from Talcahuano into Liverpool on March 2nd 1932:

    Port of Embarkation: Valparaiso
    Port at which passenger landed: Liverpool
    Name: HALCROW Andrew Fraser
    Address in the UK: 1 Carlton Place, Lerwick, Shetland
    Occupation: W.T. Operator
    Aged: 20
    Country of Last Permanent Residence: Scotland

    He's also on a family tree on ancestry.co.uk.
    Son of Andrew Fraser Halcrow, b. Walls, Shetland Islands in 1877, and Joan Williamson, also born in Shetland in 1875. His father it seems, was in the Royal Navy - he's on the 1901 Census as being a gunner in the Royal Marine Artillery at Pembroke Divison 2 at Chatham. By 1911 he's married and living in Westfield Road, Eastney, Portsmouth, just round the corner from Eastney Barracks which was until 2017 the Royal Marines Museum. They had three children, all born in Portsmouth.
