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.

His son writes: "All I could add are things outside the World War II timeframe, such as serving for the last two weeks of the First World War, and becoming the first honorary secretary of the British Seamen's Boys Home, Brixham who was not a retired vicar. The Brixham home now relies entirely on retired naval officers, and it has done them a power of good. One event he talked of comes to mind, when testing the hedgehog (was that the name of the depth charge that was fired over the bows?) at Gibraltar. An enemy aircraft came to investigate, and my father had no guns so he fired a depth charge at it. Missed, but gave him a shock and scared him off."

Murmansk convoys 03-05.42 *[posthumously; presented to next-of-kin]
* Lieutenant (E) John Gouldthorpe Boddy, Royal Navy, whose ship was heavily attacked by enemy aircraft. Lieutenant Boddy was within a few feet of one bomb when it fell: he was badly shaken by the explosion. About ten minutes later he was seen to raise himself on his hands and knees. There were fires now burning round him, and the way was blocked by debris. Cries were heard from the Stokers' mess-deck below, and Lieutenant Boddy asked a rating to help him rescue the men below. He was last seen crawling towards the hatch to try to save them. This devotion cost him his life.
