Royal Naval Reserve (RNR) Officers
1939-1945

Looking for details on a RNR 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.

Operation Struggle *
* On 31st July, 1945 in the Johore Strait, Singapore, Lieutenant FRASER, in command of HM Midget Submarine XE3, went up to attack the Japanese cruiser Takao, which was located after a long and hazardous journey. Lieutenant Fraser slid the submarine under the target which lay over a depression in the sea bed, and his diver * went out to fix the limpet mines to the bottom of the ship. The two side charges then had to be released, but the starboard charge stuck and the diver climbed out again and after a nerve-racking five minutes released the charge. XE3 then made for home.
