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.
