He joined the RN and became a submariner after training between 1906 and 1909. He lost his life along with all hands of HM Submarine E18 when it was lost in the Baltic. It appears that he qualified as a pilot on 24th December 1913 in a Bristol aircraft, certificate number 718 issued at Salisbury Plain.
I wonder, then, if he served with the RNAS whilst awaiting for his first command, Submarine D2, which was completed in the early days of the war at Barrow. See Wikipedia entry for HMS E18 for further details.
Darren Brown wrote: ... photo from a book called The Forgotten Flotilla, published by the Royal Navy Submarine Museum. Other photos of him also belong to the museum.This book is the memoirs of Robert's navigating officer Leslie Ashmore who talks a lot of him, it also describes their terrifying break though to the Baltic under the Germans nose. The whole time E18 was in the Baltic working with the Russian Fleet the commander of the British submarine E8, which was also there, kept a very detailed diary held by the Imperial War Museum. Robert was a very superstitious man, before E18 sailed on her last patrol he had his palm read, he was told he was in grave danger, from here he went to a British diplomats wife and said that if anything happens can she send a message to his wife before she received the official naval telegram, this wish carried out before the official admin date of 11-6-1916. My great grandfather for some unknown reason didn't sail on E18 that day and was replaced by the telegraphist from E8, my great grandfather became known as a good luck charm in which all the commanders wanted him on their subs, he had been with Robert Halahan from when E18 was being built and only missed this last patrol from 1901.
     The marriage of Lt Cdr Robert Crosby Halahan and Gwladys Mabel Gwatkin-Williams was registered in Christ Church, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, in the 6 July 1907 quarter.

The result was that the destroyer's bow was blown clean away; nevertheless, good seamanship enabled her to limp back to harbour. The next day E18 was lost without trace. It is presumed that she was lost to a mine. Lieutenant Commander Robert Crosbie Halahan, RN, is also commemorated on the Roll of Honour of Christ Church, in Cheltenham: Capt Henry Crosby Halahan Royal Navy. H.M.S. "President."

     MACHINE THAT BREATHES FOR SICK MAN. I have just talked with a man by whose bedside stands a machine that breathes for him. The man is Mr. S. Crosby Halahan, who, day and night for nearly two years, has been kept alive by artificial respiration. First they applied it by air; now they use a water-driven apparatus. I found him lying in a shady room on the ground floor on a house that nestles in the heart of Surrey's woodlands, two miles from the village of Chiddingfold (writes a special correspondent of the London "Daily Express"), The bedroom of this painfully wasted but indomitably plucky man of 63 overlooks a well-kept rose garden and a rich green lanni. A pretty fair haired girl - his daughter showed me to his presence. Mr. Halahan was rest ing. But the silence of the room was broken by the rhythmic beat of a strange-looking machine connected by a rubber tube to his chest. "Very interesting, isn't it," said Mr. Hnlahan, suddenly looking up, "and all worked by hydraulic water power. If it stopped I should not be able to last two minutes unless they come to my aid. That is why I have ¡L nurse during the night and my family during the day always close at hand.".
