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.

Edward Harrison Johnson, B.SC, R.N.(RET.) (S. 1927, G. 1929, A.M. 1935, M. 1952), who died on the 29th June 1962, was born at Lancaster on the 13th July 1907. He was educated at Friends School, Lancaster, and received his technical education at Leeds University. His practical training was undertaken with Lancaster Corporation and Jas. Williamson and Son, Lancaster, and in 1935 he joined St. Anne's Board Mills Co., Bristol. On the outbreak of the 1939-45 War he volunteered for service in the Royal Navy and was concerned with degaussing ships against the magnetic mine. He remained on this work throughout the war, and then transferred to the new Electrical Branch of the Royal Navy. Here he found his true metier, both afloat and ashore. After serving as fleet electrical officer in the Far East Fleet in 1948-49 and in the Home Fleet in 1952, he had barely started in a key material post at the Admiralty when he was struck down with heart trouble. He accepted this philosophically and continued to work for the Navy, as a civilian, as far as his health permitted. He was greatly respected both for his professional abilities
and for his integrity and courage. He is survived by his widow and one daughter.

His son writes: "Following war service George had an interest in Huyton Sea Cadets which I believe he founded and was first CO. He then went on to the RNAS at Stretton where he was a training officer until the disbandment of the unit. After the war he returned to the City Electrical department before becoming a teacher and subsequently a technical college lecturer where he taught electrical installations. His last appointment was as a lecturer at a college for technical college lecturers in Bolton. Towards the end of his time there he went to Bahrein for 18 months to advise on the setting up of a similar college for the Gulf States in Manama."

joined RNVR



MV Georgic (troop ship)



HMS Edinburgh Castle (RN base, Freetown, Sierra Leone)
Actor (of notable fame). His most famous roles were perhaps in the "Doctor" series of British comedy films in which he portrayed the patriarchal surgeon Sir Lancelot Spratt. Robertson Justice starred in 80 films between 1944 and 1970, including seven Doctor films. Rector of the University of Edinburgh, 1957-1960, 1963-1966. Described his career as: "... undistinguished but varied, comprising some three score jobs in different parts of the world. Inventor of the rocket propelled net method of catching wildfowl for marking." LLD (Hon.) Edinburgh, 1960.
Published: various papers on ornithology, ecology and conservation.

* James Robertson Justice seemed to have a liking for leading people astray as far as his personal life is concerned. He always maintained to have been born in Wigtown on 15.06.1905, which is incorrect. His study at the Bonn University hasn't been confirmed yet. Still a lot of mysticism around this person, which led a most adventurous & unconventional life. View the website that has been dedicated to him.
