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.

[Peter was an accomplished escaper, and got as far as stealing a boat at Bari before being sent to the punishment camp that was the Italian equivalent of Colditz Castle (Campo 5 at Gavi). In 1943, he was on a train in Italy being transported to a camp in Germany after the Italian surrender. Peter was one of a small group who decided to jump from the train. The last to leave the train, he was shot and killed on 14 September 1943, near Allessandria, Piacenza. Identified only by his naval jersey and leather belt, Peter was buried in the Italian civil cemetery at Corvino San Quirico. There is some doubt as to the identity of the grave but Peter's name is commemorated in the college chapel at Dartmouth. Mentioned as a keen escaper in George Millar's book 'Horned Pigeon', Peter was described by his best friend from the punishment camp - a fellow escaper - as "The bravest person I ever knew."]
