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.

Hadfield,
Douglas
D. Hadfield
Son of ... Hadfield, and .. Calver.

Douglas Hadfield remembers: "When I was at Cambridge University in 1942 studying physics, I and the others had to spend six weeks of the long summer vacation studying electronics; no-one knew why. When I left in 1943 I chose to join the Navy, as my famly were all keen on sailing and other watersports. "Right. Just the man we were waiting for. You can be a Radar Officer." That probably saved my life. From April 1944 to May 1945 I shuttled between half a dozen ships in mid-Atlantic to fix their radar whenever the mechanic on board couldn't fix it; I was never in any ship as long as a week before being rowed across to another in trouble. Except on the last Russian convoy, when I travelled all the way in HMS Goodall; the sea was too cold for rowing. When we were anchored near Murmansk our Group Commander heard that we might have trouble. So a few hours before we sailed he got me transferred to his ship the Loch Shin, to make sure that he could "see" the positions of all the other ships of our group. We were sent out ahead of the convoy to clear the U-boats away. (The excellent German U-boat website tells me there were fourteen of them waiting for us.) We had only just started, and were only a mile or two from land, when the Goodall was torpedoed amidships, and more than half the crew were lost. I should most likely have been one of them, in the radar cabin amidships. Seeing it happen a mile away was the only time I remember panicking, fortunately for only 15 seconds or so. So that wavy green stripe saved my life. Ships of our Group sank two of the U-boats, including U-286, which sank the Goodall."

His son Christopher writes: "On D-Day, whilst standing on the bridge of his ship, my father was shot in the chest three times by marksmen from the lighthouse that stood on Arromanches beach. He was knocked down each time and only survived because he was wearing a bullet proof vest given to him as a 21st birthday present by his mother. The lighthouse was levelled by fire from his Oerlikon heavy machine guns. I only discovered this when he produced the same bullet proof vest, complete with holes, about 9 months before he died. He was a fiercely independent, cavalier but highly intelligent character who went on to have a successful career as a barrister and then as a Chairman of Industrial Tribunals."
