Unknown # 99 Motto DIEU et mon Droit
Reportably used as motto for 1st King's Dragoon Guards.
Tatto indicates he possibly an ex-serviceman?

Maybe. But Dieu et mon Droit (God and my Right) was the motto of the British monarch, and in an extended sense of Britain as a nation. It was to be seen on many things British, like coins and passports, as well as military badges.

A check of the Titanic Enginering crew shows that over 130 of the Firemen were in their late 20 and
early 30's. The fact that #99 has both British and American tatoos shows that he spent time in both countries-at long enough to get Tatoo marked!So the
remark that he probably had been a fireman is probably correct.
