Looking for details on a RM officer not listed here yet?
Just e-mail me, and I might be able to help out.
Of course, any additions, corrections etc. can also be e-mailed.

Note. In naval circles it is custom to refer to the commander of a vessel as Captain. The Navy List bears the phrase "in command".
Strictly out of practical considerations CO (Commanding Officer) is used here on this site. Abbreviations and explanations can be found at the help page.

* Recommendation for the Military Cross to Capt. K.R.M. Perrott, RM: "On every occasion during the operation has shown initiative and courage of the highest order accompanied by absolute tireless energy. During several periods when the Royal Canadian Artillery Regimentt Forward Observation Officers were not able to call for fire from his troop this officer, of his own accord, went forward to reconnaissance Observation Posts and to contact Infantry Commanders and offer close support from his 95 mm Guns. He established Observation Posts with his Sherman Tank, or in buildings, far forward in the infantry positions. Through great initiative be engaged and harrassed the enemy when in support of a Battalion of the North Nova Scotia Regiment of Canada at VILLONS LES BUISSONS on 9 June 1944. The Battlion was being counter attacked very strongly when Capt. PERROTT arrived, and his supporting fire was successfully brought down in a few minutes and greatly assisted the Infantry in holding the position. In addition to the above task which was not part of his normal duties, Capt. PERROTT went forward with 46 R.M. Commando on 11 June,44 and moved with their Commanding Officer from ROSEL to ROTS so as to give every possible assistance. He furthermore remained out for the whole of the night of 11/12 June 1944, within 600 yds of ROTS so he could call for fire from his guns in an emergency. During that period he was aware of the fact that Tiger Tanks had been seen in the area, but with great devotion to duty he undertook this special task."
