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.

Married (04.04.1942, St Mary's Church, Cheshunt, Hertfordshire) A/P/O Constance Catherin "Connie" Parkes, WRNS ((09?).1915 - 05.04.2007), daughter of John Herburt Parkes, and Daisy Love; two sons.

His sons writes: "The story I heard the most was his account of the attack on the “Scharnhorst”, “Gneisenau” and “Prinz Eugen” as they made their dash up the English Channel. He was on board MTB 71 at the time. Two MTB’s had been ordered to go from Felixstowe (HMS Beehive) and rendezvous with other MTB’s at Ramsgate. His main recollection of the attack was when his skipper called him up from the engine room of MTB 71 and “make smoke”."1

"Whilst on deck he saw the ships and planes in the distance and as he was setting up the smoke he noticed large plumes of water rising up around the craft. He realized then that the Germans had their range and they were being shelled. At that instance a shell landed very close to the boat and the wash nearly swept him off the boat. It was this shell that cracked the main beam of MTB 71 which put it out of action for several weeks."2

His daughter Mrs Joan Clarke Mansfield provided the following career summary: "When Freddie entered the RNVR in 1942, it was as a Special Branch Officer. He was sent on a short course at the RN college at Greenwich, after which he anticipated liaison duties with the Free French navy, on the basis of his abilities in French. Instead he was sent on a course to HMS VOLCANO, on mines, booby traps and anti-personnel bombs. After station duties at HMS BELFAST and HMS CAROLINE he was assigned in June 1943 as Executive Officer on Naval Party 842A for combined operations with the Sicily landings and was ordered by the Commander to take down his green stripe (Special Branch). By August he was a casualty with a broken leg – he had fallen down a broken sewer in Catania (and had lost his watch at the same time). He was taken to hospital in Alexandria (Egypt) for treatment and recovery. Three months later he was appointed to join HMS WOOLWICH, a destroyer depot ship with the Eastern Fleet, as Executive Officer, in spite of having had no training for seagoing service. In June 1944 he was appointed to HMS SPRINGTIDE, a mine destructor vessel, as an Executive Officer. At this posting, he received a reprimand from the Commodore (D) for failing to obey berthing instructions. A letter from him to his Commanding Officer pointed out that he was in no way qualified to take command of a ship, and he was soon relieved as First Lieutenant. He was now Temporary Lieutenant Clarke. The situation took a toll on him and he was put on brief sick leave. By January 1945 Freddie is posted as to shore duties with HMS TANA at RNAS KATUKURUNDA in Colombo, Ceylon (Sri Lanka) where he acts as Sports Officer, while requesting early release to get back to his family and employment in the UK. He then is reported as at HMS VALLURU, Madras, India. He was finally released from the RNVR on January 4th 1946."
