Royal Navy (RN) Officers
1939-1945

 

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 Commanding Officer is used here on this site. Abbreviations and explanations can be found at the help page.

* "Awarded the George Cross for most conspicuous gallantry in carrying out hazardous work in a very brave manner." Lt. Fasson together with Able Seaman Colin Grazier, R.N., both boarded a sinking submarine following action by H.M.S. Petard. The crew of the submarine surrendered and survivors were taken off. In total darkness Fasson and Grazier entered the sinking submarine to capture instruments and documentation fully aware of the dangers. They continued to hand over documents and equipment until suddenly the vessel sank like a stone without warning and took both to their deaths . Both were posthumously awarded the George Cross.

MHz

rescue of survivors of the Dutch schooner Hedwig near Hong Kong 02.12.30
* For valour in challenging hopeless odds and giving his life to save the many ships it was his duty to protect. On the 5th November, 1940, in heavy seas Captain Fegen, in his Majesty’s Armed Merchant Cruiser Jervis Bay, was escorting thirty-one Merchantmen. Sighting a powerful German warship, he at once drew clear of the Convoy, made straight for the enemy and brought his ship between the raider and her prey, so that they might scatter to escape. Crippled, in flames, unable to reply for nearly an hour the Jervis Bay held the German’s fire. So she went down; but of the Merchantmen, all but four or five were saved.
**
On the 24th March, 1918, while the British s.s. "War Knight" was proceeding up the English Channel in convoy, she collided with the United States oil carrier "O.B. Jennings". It appears that the naphtha, which was on board the latter vessel, ignited, and the two ships and surrounding water were soon enveloped in flames. The Master of the "O.B. Jennings" gave orders that all the ship's available boats should be lowered, those on the starboard side were burnt, and the crew abandoned the ship in the port boats, whilst the Master, Chief Engineer, Chief Officer and three others remained on board. H.M.S. "Garland", under the command of Lieutenant Fegen, with other destroyers, were proceeding to the spot to render assistance, when it was seen that one boat which had been lowered from the "O.B. Jennings" had been swamped. The "Garland" closed the "O.B. Jennings", rescued the men from the swamped boat, and then proceeded alongside the ship, whach was still blazing, and rescued those who were still on board. She afterwards proceeded to pick up the others who had left the ship in boats, rescuing in all four officers and twenty-two men. Lieutenant Fegen handled his ship in a very able manner under difficult conditions during the rescue of the survivors, while Driscoll worked the helm and saw that all orders to the engine-room were correctly carried out.
