Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve (RNVR) Officers
1939-1945

Looking for details on a RNVR 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. For some more explanations & abbreviations see the help page.

Alexander,
John Montague
J.M. Alexander
Married; .. children (one son?).

His son Dave Alexander writes: "My Dad was based in Colombo, Trincomalee and a few other places. He was involved with Under Water Weapons Development. There was a lot of experiments going on down in Addu Atoll in the Maldives, but I don't know how long he was there. I also know that he made trips to a Research Laboratory in Teddington, Middlesex, from time to time. He  was also on HMS Manxman somewhere in the Mediterranean. In the 1950's he was based in Malta and was in charge of Qrendi Mine Depot and spent a lot of time on HMS Forth (a Submarine Depot Ship) berthed in Msida Creek in Malta. His rank was Lt Commander RNVR. He had been involved in mines and torpedoes, submarine etc.; the Navy working on a Sonar device going by the name of "Sword Beam" high frequency narrow band, mainly for use in tropical waters, and also a device to prevent enemy minesweepers from surfacing mines from their "sinkers" on the sea bed, which was called and "S" Coupling. There were many trips in latter years to Foxhill, Lansdowne, Copenacre on top of or near to Box Tunnel and RAF Rudloe Manor. He was involved with various designs of anti-submarine devices, and spent a lot of time in the Pacific, trialing various underwater bits & pieces, and I know he spent a lot of time around the Maldives, Hong Kong and lots of other places around the UK."
