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 Commanding Officer is used here on this site. For some more explanations & abbreviations see the help page.

Adventurer, intelligence officer, and author. Minshall was well known for his travels, which included a two-year sailing trip on various bodies of water throughout Europe and a trek across the Sahara desert in a three-wheeled light truck, and he is thought to be one of the men on whom author Ian Fleming based his notorious spy character, James Bond. Prior to World War II Minshall served as a sub-lieutenant for the British Royal Navy Volunteer Reserve, and during the war he worked for Great Britain's Special Operations Executive. His first mission (1940) was to Romania where he was disguised as the British Vice Consul in Bucharest on a mission to blow up some tankers in an attempt to block the Danube (unsuccessful as it turned out because the Germans were 'tipped off'). Among his intelligence assignments was the control of operation "Shamrock", in which he led a small group of Frenchmen to the Gironde Estuary on the west coast of France where they studied the movements of German submarines. After organizing special naval intelligence in New Zealand, Minshall was promoted to commander and sent in 1943 to establish a naval liaison between Great Britain and Yugoslavia. Minshall recorded his wartime adventures in his autobiography, Guilt-edged (1975).

His parents Mordaunt Kirwan Smith, and Blanche had lived in Laugharne, and are buried in the churchyard, and his older brother Lionel was killed in the Great War, serving with the Inniskilling Fusiliers. Bridgeman served in the Great War as a Midshipman in the Royal Navy. He was aboard H.M.S. Colossus in the Battle of Jutland, when the Colossus was hit by German shellfire and damaged. He was home in Laugharne on leave shortly afterwards, before returning to sea and finishing the war off unscathed. After the Great War, Bridgeman was commissioned into the Royal Indian Navy, where he served as Sub-Lieutenant until resigning his Commission in 1922. Later that year he was commissioned into the Royal Warwickshire Regiment as 2nd Lieutenant, resigning his commission there in September 1926, due to Bankruptcy proceedings due to a failed business venture. At the outbreak of the Second War, Bridgeman was commissioned as Temporary Lieutenant in the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve, on the 16th November 1939. From the 10th January 1940, he served at H.M.S. Elfin-a submarine base in Blyth , then from 7th January 1941 at H.M.S. Flora-a Royal Naval base at Invergordon-for miscellaneous services. Bridgeman Rochfort Mordaunt Smith was recorded with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission as killed in action on the 6th September 1943, but the details of his death are a bit sketchy, as his Death Certificate shows that he died at home in Warwick of Heart Failure at the age of 44.  Bridgeman had been serving at the Royal Naval base at Invergordon, which was used as a base for Sunderland 'Flying Boats' during WW2. The base was within range of German Bombers and had been deemed to be too dangerous to be used as a Naval Base for the British Naval Fleet.
