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.

for gallant and distinguished services in the Far East

Cross of Merit of the Red Cross Order [Verdienstkreuz des Ehrenzeichens des Deutschen Roten Kreuzes], 13.01.1938 (in recognition of services to the wounded members of the crew of the German battleship "Deutschland" at Gibraltar)
[The services referred to occurred in 1937 in the immediate aftermath of the 'Deutchland Incident' that occurred during the Spanish Civil War. Spanish Republican Air Force bombers attacked the German battleship 'Deutchland' causing an estimated 80 casualties including more then 50 deaths, the British helped evacuate the German wounded and provided extensive medical support through the British military and naval medical services located in Gibraltar. As a consequence an estimated 20 x German 'Red Cross' awards - of various grades -were bestowed upon British Naval and Military personnel for their services after the 'Deutchland Incident', of which only 4 were awarded to Naval personnel (2 x senior officers received the first class of the order, and two others including Murphy received the Cross of Merit, or 'Verdienstkreuz Steckkreuz').]
