Royal Marine (RM) Officers
1939-1945

  

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.

Sutcliffe,
Peter Mahon
P.M. Sutcliffe (Photo courtesy of Mrs Jill Simmons)
Son of Surgeon Cdr. Percy Temple Sutcliffe, OBE, MB, MA (1873-1949).
Married (1936) Molly Stone, of Southsea; two sons, one daughter.

The following details were provided by his daughter:              "Took up teaching Mathematics and Games. He was with a Preparatory School in Pluckley, Kent (this burnt down one night and the school moved to near Salisbury, Wiltshire). In 1956 he went into partnership with the headmaster of a preparatory school at Woburn Sands, Bedfordshire, and together they ran this school until its demise in 1974. My father was then 61, and he and my mother moved down to a village (Mawnan Smith) near Falmouth, Cornwall where they enjoyed a fair amount of sailing. The aluminium boat (known as Jeremy Fisher) was still with us, and caused quite a stir on the Helford River etc. when she was taken out. When my father died, my mother gave the boat to the RM, but most unfortunately she disappeared and despite many enquiries and searches made on our behalf, we never found out what had happened to her. Blondie Hasler (who was my older brother's godfather) designed the boat, and there were very few of them around; only 5 or 6 I believe."
