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

A relative writes: "He was a Lieutenant during the Second World War and served as Secretary to the Captain of HMS Malaya until the ship was torpedoed in the Mediterranean, she was able to reach New York under her own power, for repairs. He joined the staff at the British Embassy whilst repairs were completed, then rejoined his ship and proceeded to Malta. After convoy duty he was transferred to HMS Penelope, the pepper pot cruiser, so named because there were so many shell holes in her structure. He was severely wounded during an attack on the Italian coast and was taken to Alexandria hospital (Egypt). He was afterwards transferred to Singapore as Secretary to the Commodore where he remained until the end of hostilities."
