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.

From Crediton Courier Newspaper: "A man of great courage and fortitude Lt Cdr Terry Janion lived and died a man of great courage and fortitude. Born in Plymouth in 1917, he lived to the grand age of 83 years after a full, active and very happy life. It was in 1933 that Terry fulfilled his boyhood dream and joined the Royal Navy as "Boy 2nd Class". After training at HMS Ganges at Shotley, Ipswich, his first posting was to HMS Hood, based at Portsmouth. Terry wanted to be based at Devonport and with Admiralty agreement, was allowed to swop with Jock Wilson, and was posted to HMS Rodney. This was a fateful day for both men, for shortly afterwards, HMS Hood was lost with all men. After HMS Rodney, Terry served on a succession of ships and at training establishments. In 1940, just after the outbreak of war, he was promoted to Sub Lieutenant and drafted to the destroyer, HMS Witch. Whilst serving on the Witch, in 1942, Terry was Mentioned In Despatches for an action which occurred off Sable Island, off the coast of Newfoundland. An American ship, the USS Independence Hall, had foundered on a reef in gale force winds and had broken in half. Many men were lost but 37 survivors remained on the forward section of the ship. HMS Witch responded and positioned herself downwind of the Independence Hall and as close as she dared. Terry and another Sub Lt by the name of Fothergill each skippered a whaler and attempted to pull across to the stricken ship. The seas were mountainous and the whalers were frequently stood on their ends by the huge waves. Together with another rescue boat from a Canadian ship, and after several extremely dangerous approaches, they managed to rescue all 37 survivors but in doing so Terry's whaler was capsized. All the crew were thrown into the sea. One crew member, Petty Officer Trick rapidly drifted away from the overturned hull of the whaler and Terry desperately swam after him. He was unable to save him and PO Trick was the only casualty of the rescue. After the Witch came service in a long list of ships and he ended his sea-going career as Commander of the minesweeper, HMS Truelove. After active service, he completed his Naval service as Assistant Captain of Devonport Dockyard before retiring in 1962. In 30 years he had served on battleships, cruisers, frigates, destroyers, minesweepers and troopships. He had seen action in most of the major Naval theatres of war, which included Atlantic convoys, Russian convoys, D-Day landings, Salerno landings and The Burma campaign. At the surrender of the Japanese Navy he was presented with the Ceremonial sword of a Japanese Naval Officer by Lord Louis Mountbatten, Supreme Commander, SEAC. Medals Terry received included the Atlantic Star (with France and Germany clasp), 1939-45 Star, Burma Star, Italy Star and War Medal (with Oak Leaf, denoting "Mentioned in Despatches". After a brief spell in business, Terry returned to Navy affairs as a civilian employee of the MOD in the drawing office at Devonport Dockyard and remained there until his second retirement in 1982. Just before the outbreak of the last war, Terry met Patricia and they were married in September 1941. They had two children, Diane and Paul, and four grandchildren, Neil, Nicholas, Joanna and James. Terry and Pat enjoyed a full and happy retirement, eventually moving to the outskirts of Exeter to live near their family. In 1998, at the age of 80, Terry became critically ill with kidney failure. As a result he became a regular at Sid Ward, Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, where he underwent a punishing routine of treatment three times a week. He also had underlying heart problems and it was in the early hours of Boxing Day that he died as a result of cardiac arrest. His funeral service, conducted by the Rev Anthony Geering, was held at Crediton Parish Church on Thursday, January 11. Donations, if desired, may be sent to A White and Sons, funeral directors, of Peoples Park Road, Crediton, for either the Kidney Unit Trust Fund (RD and E Hospital), Chiddenbrook Surgery League of Friends or Crediton Church Organ Appeal Fund."

bringing damaged ship to harbour *
EGM exchanged for GC
* Citation: Commander Jolly's gallantry consisted of the bringing of his ship into harbour when he himself was mortally wounded. HMS Mohawk had been attacked by enemy aircraft and had suffered a large number of casualties. Despite his own severe wounds Commander Jolly refused to leave the bridge and continued to direct the Mohawk for a 56-kilometre passage home which lasted for an hour and twenty minutes. He repeatedly refused medical attention, saying, "Leave me, go and look after the others". Having brought his ship into port, he collapsed, and some five hours after being landed he died. The Captain of his Flotilla reported, "Commander Jolly was an imperturbable Commander of careful judgment who devoted his energies to perfecting his ship and ship's company for battle. His fearlessness and honesty in counsel were remarkable, and he proved his bravery and devotion to his wounded men when for a long period he manoeuvred his ship despite a mortal wound".

T/Instr.Lt. 30.04.1942 (reld 02.12.1946)
 
Education: St Patrick's, Dumbarton; Glasgow University (MA (Hons) 1937).
Trained as a teacher. Teacher St Mungo's Academy, Glasgow.
31.12.1940     enlisted
12.1940 - 12.1942 after initial training at HMS Raleigh, Torpoint, Cornwall; he had a few months at HMS Victory, Portsmouth; returning to Raleigh before going to Devonport Dockyard based on Prince Leopold. He then spent June at HMS Quebec at Inverary, before returning to Prince Leopold for July 1941. From 1st August to August 1942 he seems to have been mainly at HMS Quebec with forays of a few days to other assignments. From then until his appointment on HMS Newfoundland on 31st December 1942, he seems to have alternated between Greenwich, HMS President and HMS Victory, with one month at HMS Dryad and a fortnight at HMS Daedalus

His daughter writes: "I found his "Career" in the Navy extraordinary as he seems to have been "everywhere". He certainly got around! He was on Arctic convoys and the sinking of the Scharnhost ; he was on the Malta run on HMS Newfoundland when it was badly damaged & was part of the crew who took it to Boston from Malta under propellers and jury rigged sails for its refit; he was at Sword Beach, Normandy; and then to the Far East for the surrender of the Japanese forces at Penang. My Grandfather said that the worst of all he experiences had been taking the ex POWs of the Japs to Australia."
* Service papers in possession of his daughter indicate he went back to HMS Nelson 08.08.1945 and stayed there until release on 02.12.1946. Navy List gives HMS London.
