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.

Baddeley,
Philip
P. Baddeley
Son of ... Baddeley, and ... Stagg.

His son writes: "I think that he joined up in 1939 to train as a pilot in the navy but failed the eye test and moved to the ships. He joined the London Division of the RNVR. By Christmas of 1940, he was on HMS Nigeria patrolling the Denmark Straits over Christmas. He then moved again. I think that he qualified in radio operations. The observation ship which was patrolling off the coast of Portugal was sunk and he was rescued by the HMS Scarborough and taken to Gibraltar.  He was then on the HMS Renown and taken back into the Med with three other injured people before being taken back to the UK. He recovered at Glen Eagles Hotel and then was stationed on the Tyne before going back to sea. He ended up rescuing Dutch women and children in Java in LST 371 under Lt.Cdr. C.R. Martin. As with so many people, he never talked about the war but recently answered my questions. He returned to work."
