Looking for details on a RN 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. Abbreviations and explanations can be found at the help page.

Service record available upon request.

His grandson writes: "I was aware of my grandfather's involvement with the Torpedo (he was involved in the development of guidance systems for them). He also had a story of the trial for the first Gyro guided torpedo, which involved the test torpedo running straight out...as planned... then doing a complete 180, and running straight back, narrowly missing the torpedo tube... luckily unarmed! My Grandfather was also a fly-fisherman of some standing (numerous books to that effect), and a founder member of the Kennet and Avon Canal Trust. He spent much of his childhood in Sark... quite how that happened we are unsure."
