A search on google says that no such phrase exists. Event looking at it does
not read correctly.
Have a look at
And also the National Archives research guide on divorce -
From memory the full papers only exist until the mid 1930's after that all
that is kept is the decree nisi. Some of the early papers (1858-1916) are
available on Ancestry
I than had a look using my favourite search name SMITH! on
and that turned up entries from
J121 Court of Probate and Supreme Court of Judicature, High Court of
Justice, Probate, Divorce and Admiralty Division: Principal Probate Registry
I would suggest looking there for your divorce
Alternatively have you tried newspapers? - try the British Newspaper Archive

Subject: [SOG-UK] A Royal Navy Divorce
I wonder if somebody could help me with this.
I have a relative who was in the Royal Navy and he got married in Ceylon in
He then subsequently got divorced on 4th April 1947, apparently at something
called the Probate Court The Admiralty Division.
This is the first time that I have looked at a relative's divorce and would
like to know if this sounds correct ?
