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.

* Lieutenant Place, commanding the Midget Submarine X7, along with Lieutenant Cameron, commanding Midget Submarine X6, on the 22nd September, 1943, at Kaafjord, Norway, carried out a most a daring and successful attack on the German Battleship Tirpitz. Lieutenant Place found a gap in the outer net at 4am on the 22nd September. He waited for a minesweeper to come out before taking the X7 through the opening. Unfortunately the X7 ran into a torpedo net. After going full astern and flooding and blowing the tanks, they got through. At 6:40am, he sighted the Tirpitz, approximately 1700 yards away. X7 got stuck in another net and on freeing itself they broke surface, 30 yards from the Tirpitz. They submerged and made contact with the Battleship, approximately 20 ft below its B Turret. They edged below, and under the keel, lined up, fore and aft, with the enemy ship. The X7, then dropped her starboard charge, after which, she went astern for 150 yards or more before dropping her second charge.
