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.

Group Commander for the operation to capture Oran [HMS Walney (escort)]
* The citation for the Victoria Cross read: "For valour in taking HMS Walney, into the harbour of Oran, North Africa, on 8th November 1942. This port was held by the Vichy French. Captain Peters led his force through the boom towards the jetty, all the time under fire at point-blank range from the enemy shore batteries as well as fire from a Vichy French Destroyer and a Cruiser. Although he was blinded in one eye, he was the only one of 17 officers on the bridge that survived. HMS Walney, badly disabled and on fire, managed to make it to the jetty. She sank with her Colours flying. Blinded in one eye, Captain Peters was the only survivor of the seventeen men on the bridge of the 'Walney'. He was taken prisoner but was later released when Oran was captured. On being liberated from gaol, he was carried through the streets where the citizens hailed him with flowers."
