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.

* Lieutenant Smart was in command of His Majesty's Midget Submarine XE-1 and accompanied XE-3 m the successful attack on a heavy Japanese cruiser [Takeo] in Johore Strait, Singapore. Like XE-3, Lieutenant Smart also left the believed safe channel during his long approach up the Singapore Straits and entered mined waters to avoid suspected hydrophone posts. XE-1's target was a heavy cruiser of the Nachi class berthed about two miles beyond the Atago cruiser which XE-3 was to attack. Unfortunately XE-1 was delayed in her attack owing to several encounters with surface craft and instead of passing the boom ahead of XE-3 as planned, actually passed it go minutes after XE-3. This robbed Lieutenant Smart of the necessary margin of time to reach his target and withdraw before dark and he accordingly decided to attack the Atago class cruiser. Unable to get his craft underneath the target he dropped his main charge close alongside it and withdrew. The passage involved the same great hazards as those faced by XE-3 and Lieutenant Smart displayed great courage throughout this hazardous operation.

* For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He led his men with great dash and determination in an attack, and, having captured the final objective, he organised and led an attack on a strong point, which he captured. He was driven out by heavy shell fire, but at once led another attack and regained and held the position and captured a field gun. He set a magnificent example of courage, initiative, and leadership.

22.04.1943 - (10.1945) Small Vessels Pool, Admiralty [HMS President]

Of events on the 31 May 1940, Sparkes wrote in his official report:
‘0530 - beaches in sight. 0610 - approached to within the two fathom line. Hailed by launch. Captain Howson, R.N., Naval Officer in Charge of the beaches, came on board and said we were to be his flagship. We were used throughout the day at Bary, towing loaded boats to the destroyers and, on the return journey, taking empty boats in to the vicinity of the pier, and letting them drift ashore for a fresh load. On some occasions, this was varied by embarking troops on board us, letting the boats drift ashore while we steamed to the destroyers to transfer our load. Our own launch was lowered and, under F. Barter, Yacht Engineer, and Able Seaman W. F. Lunn, was employed towing loaded whalers to destroyers. This routine was maintained throughout the day. It is impossible to give an accurate figure of the number of men helped, but it is estimated that between 900-1000 were ferried off. 1930 - heavy bombing raid, four bombs fell very close to us, causing leaks forward and in the stern tubes. 2000 - left Bray on instructions from Captain Howson and proceeded to Dover. 0815 - berthed Dover. Special mention is made of the work of Yacht Engineer F. Barter and Able Seaman W. F. Lunn, who ran the launch until it was swamped, most of the time under fire and bombing.’

His son-in-law Martin D. Jeffes writes: "When my father-in-law was doing his basic training he was selected as potential officer material, and told that he would be commissioned after a six-month basic training period. This is what he served aboard the Alynbank, which, after having its bomb removed at Portsmouth, after PQ18, was sent to rendezvous with the Queen Mary off Dakar, to provide a link in the escort of this vessel, which was en-route from Cape Town to Britain with troops. The Alynbank then went to Gibraltar to work with the Malta convoys, he thinks, and he left the ship about this time, at Alexandria, and was flown home in a Dakota, to begin his officer training at King Alfred. From there he went to a two week navigation course at Greenwich, before going to Troon to join a group being organised by Lord Mountbatten, which he calls the Inshore Squadron, consisting of landing craft and MTB's, and which is where he joined LCT(R)167, and went in it to the Mediterranean."
