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.

* Recommendations for Honours and Awards dated 27th September 1943 made by Capt W.G. Andrewes, endorsed by Rear Admiral Commanding 15th Cruiser Squadron and confirmed by Commander-in-Chief Mediterranean, Admiral Sir Andrew Cunningham: "This Officer was in charge of the damage Control Organisation of the ship. When the ship was struck by a heavy bomb, which caused considerable damage to the ships structure, heavy flooding and loss of life, the damage Control Parties worked efficiently and calmly in limiting the danger and controlling the flooding. That they did so well, initially in darkness and working in compartments heavily contaminated by fuel oil, was in large measure due to Lieut. Reed’s training and organisation. From the moment the bomb hit the ship Lieut. Reed was personally directing and controlling the activities of the Damage Control Organisation which he did with the greatest efficiency and devotion to duty."

During this period she captured the German steamer Ulla Boog, bringing a cargo of pit props from Archangel to south Wales. In September she was sent to West Africa, to form part of the naval squadron assisting the attack on the Cameroons (with HMS Cumberland and the French cruiser Bruix). On 25 September she was used to cross the barrier at the entrance to Duala, having been lightened to reduce her draft. Two days later Duala surrendered, but the campaign went on into 1915. By January 1915, she was engaged in the blockade of Edea. At the end of April, she was relieved by the Astraea. Commissioned Gunner from 31 December 1915, and Mate from 11th December 1917. Served on Torpedo boat TB108 in 1916, then Destroyers.

... - ... ...
Joined RN Reserve 1932, winning the King’s Gold Medal and as Chief Cadet Captain at the age of 17 he joined the RN. Because of short-sightedness he began his service as paymaster cadet in Frobisher in the West Indies. Later joining London he evacuated British nationals the day after the Spanish Civil War erupted 1936, as the only Spanish speaker he acted as liaison officer. At outbreak of WW2 he was aboard Sussex seeking Graf Spee, then transferred to Galatea where he volunteered his linguistic services to the boarding party to seize the French destroyer Mistral, where his prompt action prevented the ship from being scuttled and blocking Plymouth Harbour. Thereafter he was at sea constantly in a succession of ships on patrol duties in the North Sea and Atlantic North-West approaches and the Russian convoys to Murmansk. 1942-47 he was based in Bermuda under the British Naval Officer, Western Atlantic, where he assisted in exposing the only attempted Nazi sabotage mission on United States soil. Promoted lieutenant commander 1952 and posted to Hong Kong as Commodore’s secretary; promoted to commander 1954. Naval attaché in Madrid from 1962, appointed OBE 1964 and retired 1966.
