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.

Commander of the Order of St Olav (Norway) StOlav 13.01.1948 services to Norway

* For the great skill and gallantry displayed by him in handling his ship in the presence of a greatly superior enemy force and under heavy fire. He performed most efficiently his main duty of shadowing the enemy and reporting his movements. He proceeded into the minefield to engage a superior force of enemy destroyers and drove them back to their base.  He again entered the minefield at great risk to his ship, and gallantly rescued 162 survivors of the "Breslau" whilst still being fired on from shore batteries.

* Lieutenant E.D. Norman was in command of H.M.S. "UPRIGHT" on war patrol in the Central Mediterranean between 19th and 26th February 1941. During the middle watch on 23rd February "UPRIGHT" located and sank by Torpedo a darkened and zigzagging enemy vessel carrying petrol to forces in Tripolitania, and during the middle watch on the 25th February he attacked and sank by Torpedo an enemy cruiser, escorted by two other enemy warships. Only twelve minutes elapsed between sighting this fast and powerful enemy ship and firing the torpedoes which sank it. The difficulties overcome in these two successive attacks carried out on dark nights exemplify the efficiency and alertness of his command and Lieutenant Norman’s personal determination and skill.
