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.

Operation Neptune (Normandy landings 06.44)
* When "Sirius" was sinking he went alongside in his motor-launch under very heavy fire and took off 50 of the crew; then proceeding to "Brilliant " he took on- board 16 men, and afterwards returning to "Sirius" took off remainder of officers and crew. He showed the utmost coolness and judgment in handling his vessel throughout.
** Volunteered for rescue work at Ostend in command of M.L. 283. He was ordered to follow astern and assist two other motor launches which were detailed for rescue work. He remained at the Stroom Bank Buoy position until "Vindictive" had passed and then followed her, patrolling east and west within a quarter of a mile of the shore under heavy pom-pom and machine-gun fire, searching for survivors until 3.20 a.m., when all hope of finding anyone had passed.
*** On the 12th April, 1918, an explosion took place in the engine-room of H.M. Motor Launch 356, and the forward tanks burst into flame. The Officer and some of the crew were blown overboard by the explosion, and the remainder were quickly driven aft by the flames, and were taken off in a skiff. By this time the flames were issuing from the cabin hatch aft, and there was much petrol burning on the surface of the water. It was then realised by the crews of adjacent vessels that the aft petrol tanks and the depth charge were being attacked by the fire, and might explode at any moment. At the moment when others were running away, Lieutenant Hoare and Sub-Lieutenant Bagot jumped into their dinghy, rowed to the wreck, got on board, and removed the depth charge, thereby preventing an explosion which might have caused serious loss of life amongst the crowd of English and French sailors on the quay.

In 1960, Kit made a trip to Nova Scotia where he discovered beautiful Pictou County. That summer, the family moved to the East River Valley. Kit was employed at Eastern Meat Packers and Canso Chemicals while continuing with his love for farming, raising sheep, judging sheep-dog trials and many other aspects of the sheep industry. He was an elder in the St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church, St. Pauls, a past president and active member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch #75, Eureka.
