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.

02.1946 - (04.1946) on staff of Vice-Admiral (Q) British Pacific Fleet [HMS Golden Hind II (RN depot, Sydney, NSW)]
31.07.1952     transferred, Permanent RNVR
Returned to work for a clothing firm. Joined the Diplomatic Wireless Service (1954), serving for 6 months in Tunisia, later (1967) transferring to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. His first long posting was to Athens (11.1960) where he soon became fluent in Greek, he already spoke fluent French. He embraced Embassy life. As a Diplomat from 12.09.1960 (Grade 6 Officer in Branch B of the Foreign Service) he moved to postings abroad Singapore (07.1963), Zambia (1972), Vietnam (1974), Hong Kong, Cyprus (01.1976) and Washington (11.1978). The fall of Saigon was unexpected and very rapid; most embassy staff were airlifted out, but Ken was one of 5 embassy staff left to tidy up, his last days there spent on the flat roof of the Embassy burning secret documents while Viet Cong rockets flew overhead. He was airlifted out by the Americans.

[missing, presumed killed on air operations, flying a Firefly, failing to return from a strike, strafing enemy shipping at Hirara, near Shimo Islands, Japan *]
* The target for the escort was a tanker anchored in the bay. Shortly before reaching the target area, the Air Group Leader sent the Fireflies ahead to make their attack, however only the leading flight attacked the target before it was bombed by the Avengers. On leaving the main target, the Fireflies individually strafed a number of luggers (small sailing vessels). Lieutenant Stevens was last heard on the R/T when ordering the attack on the original target. He was last seen when his flight split up to attack the luggers, flying at no more than five hundred feet from sea level.

His son writes: "Following his training in 1942/43 at Collingwood, Victory, he commenced as Ord/Seaman on the Zetland. He returned to Victory and King Alfred for officer training and his first commission was the return to HMS Zetland as Acting Sub Lt. on temporary commission on the 4th June 1943.  At this point his service record is blank but on the 15th Sept 1943 he was sent to Peterhead to pick up a new minesweeper MMS 1045 and put it through its trials before returning to North Shields.  From then on until 1946 he was with MMS1045. On 31/1/1944 he was declared 'competent to take on watch at sea as lieutenant (Acting).  In June 1945 under Lt.Cdr. McMorran RNVR, commander of the minesweeper fleet based between Alesund and Trondheim, he was present at the surrender of Aviso Grille, Hitler's yacht and left good photos of that time.  He has left much of interest including an experience he had on HMS Zetland off the North African coast, when it was attacked by 4 German torpedo bombers. His account is quite detailed since he was the first to spot the raid and found himself reporting back to the bridge what was happening."
