Leonard Edward Francis Rose was born at St. Pancras, London on 16 April 1912 and entered the Royal Navy as a Boy 2nd Class in November 1928.
He was awarded his L.S. & G.C. Medal in March 1945, while serving as a Petty Officer in the landing craft L.S.T. 303, which ship first saw action in at the Sicily landings. She was likewise engaged in the Anzio landings but Rose would appear to have joined her at the time of the Normandy landings in June 1944. L.S.T. 303 was next actively employed in the invasion of Malaya and ended the war in the 12th Flotilla in the Pacific.
