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.

Sandvid,
Leonard George [Samuelson-]
L.G. Sandvid
Married (20.05.1923) Dorothy Pilbin (died 1984); six daughters, two sons.

His daughter gave additional information, which complements the few data I can derive from the "official" source, the Navy List: "My father Engineer Lieutenant Leonard George Samuelson-Sandvid was at Dorlin House round about 1943 I think. He started the war on HMS Hood; then was on HMS Effingham when we tried to halt the invasion of Norway - when the Effingham sank off the Norwegian coast he then joined a sort of commando group who commandeered a Norwegian vessel The Raven, changed the name to HMS Ranen and used her to sail up the Norwegian coast sabotaging anything of value to the Germans - the group consisted of sailors who had lost their ships; and soldiers who had lost their regiments, including South Africans and French Foreign Legion, and Chasseurs Alpins. It was probably this experience which led to his being posted to HMS Dorlin. He was commissioned and given a Mention In Despatches for his courage on the voyage back from Norway when our forces were withdrawn, when the Ranen was hotly pursued by dive bombers to the full extent of their range. He also did  Atlantic convoys on HMS Broadway (one of the three-funnelled American destroyers we got under Lend/Lease) and was there when the German submarine was captured, on which Code Wheels were found which helped Bletchley Park to decode "Enigma" . He also spent some time on a French destroyer (not sure whether Free French, or captured at Oran) called I think La Melpomene, and ended the war on HMS Rame Head, anchored in Plymouth Sound  - a mother ship for Channel minesweepers and small ships."

George Medal

GM
15.05.1945
mine clearance ports France & Low Countries * / **
* "For exceptional gallantry, skill and great devotion to duty, often in close proximity to the enemy, during mine-searching and clearance operations in the ports of Normandy and of the Low Countries."
** A document dated 21.07.1945 states: "Lieutenant Saull went into Ouistreham in advance of the Naval Party with which he was serving, and discovered demolition charges on the lock gates and the bridge which he rendered safe. With another officer he discovered and removed scuttling and demolition charges from craft and strong points in the Port area and rendered safe a controlled minefield in the harbour entrance." As it speaks of a "bar to the George Medal" it is probably a citation for a further decoration following upon Saull's death, which was in the end not substantiated.
Education: Ashford Council School; Richmond Technical Institute (1928-1930)
By 1937 he had been employed for five years by a firm of Electrical Engineers based in St Annes-on-the-Sea, working on wiring contracts.

escaped POW

Volunteered for the FAA and following basic training conducted a basic flying course with the US Navy in Florida then returning to the UK he continued with training in the Hurricane with deck-landings. Whilst serving on board Attacker with his first operational squadron flying Seafires the ship was torpedoed by German aircraft in Gibraltar harbour. Later he was shot down supporting the Allied landings in the South of France, narrowly escaping death when he was trapped in his cockpit until he finally got clear but was captured by a German unit. His war ended in the Far East and he demobbed at age 22, however, when the RN started recruiting once again he re-joined to fly. Whilst flying a Firebrand during his 152nd deck landing he became tangled in a web of cables. He completed the Empire Test Pilots Course at Boscombe Down and amongst many aircraft he test flew the Meteor, Sea Hawk and prototype helicopters including the Wasp. He commanded 700 NAS with the task of evaluating and developing helicopter operations on the back of small ships and was Lt Cdr Flying onboard Hermes.
