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.

Mention in Despatches MID 11.07.1940 HM's birthday 40

* On the 15th July, 1919, during minesweeping operations in the Baltic, four mines were swept up which H.M.S. "Myrtle," commanded by Lieutenant-Commander Scott, and another vessel were ordered to sink. During the operations the two vessels were mined, and H.M.S. "Myrtle" immediately began to sink. So great was the force of the explosion that all hands in the engine room and after boiler room of the ship were killed with one exception, and many others of the crew were wounded. After the wounded had been successfully transferred to another vessel, the forepart of H.M.S. "Myrtle" broke away and sank. Lieutenant-Commander Scott, hearing that the fate of one of the crew of the "Myrtle" had not been definitely ascertained, gallantly returned alone to what was left of the ship, which was drifting through the minefield, rolling heavily and burning fiercely, and regardless of the extreme risk which he ran, made a thorough search for the missing man, unfortunately without success.

Upon the death of Lt.Cdr. (E) B. Scott-Garrett his daughters wrote: "He joined the Royal Navy on 8 August 1935 and was appointed by the Admiralty to start cadet training on HMS Frobisher at Chatham Docks on 10 September 1936, having been awarded 1st class honours degree in engineering at the Royal Naval college. His first experience on the Frobisher was a three month cruise to the Azores, and the West Indies (Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados, St Lucia, Antigua, Tortola in February 1936) followed by Stockholm and Copenhagen (June 1936). He briefly served on the battle cruiser HMS Hood leaving only two months before she was blown up in May 1941 with massive loss of life. In 1941, he was involved in commissioning the HMS Euryalus of the 15th cruiser squadron at Chatham, and subsequently sailed to the Mediterranean through the Suez Canal, crossing the equator for the first time, and reaching Cape Town in South Africa in October 1941. The Euryalus subsequently returned via Aden and the Suez Canal to the Eastern Mediterranean to escort convoys to Malta (March 1942) and took part in the Battle of the Sirte. He was appointed a Lieutenant in 1942, and in August sailed to Alexandria, Egypt. During his time in Egypt, he served briefly with the army as part of a group which later became the SAS under David Stirling. He took part in a dangerous mission crossing the desert from Cairo in a jeep to Sudan and the Libyan Desert via Kufra and up to Jebel, returning safely to Wadi Halfa where they sailed along the Nile back to Cairo. He joined the cruiser HMS Scylla, which was part of the Invasion fleet in the Normandy landings in June 1944, and this was followed by HMS Perseus, sailing from Southampton to Australia crossing the equator again on 10 December 1945, and returning via Aden and Gibraltar. He met our mother Margaret, while he was stationed at Rosyth in Scotland (1946), followed by Eglinton near Londonderry (1948), and Abbotsinch (1949) and they were married on 10 June 1950. In 1951, he was appointed to the Admiralty office in London, followed by a final tenure in the Fleet Air Arm , based at Yeovilton from 1955-56. He retired from the Royal Navy in 1958, his rank was Lieutenant Commander."

* On 13th May, 1937, H.M.S. "Hunter" sustained serious damage in an explosion off Almeria, Spain. Immediately the ship took on a heavy list, all lights were extinguished and there was no steam. Apparently she was about to sink. Lieutenant-Commander Scurfield, who was aft, rushed forward. Passing the galley, he heard cries from the Petty Officer Cook, who had fallen into the boiler room. He jumped down through the smoke, oil fuel, steam and debris, and by extraordinary feats of strength removed the wreckage pinning the man down. The rating was passed up on deck, but did not long survive. Lieutenant-Commander Scurfield then proceeded to the Torpedomen's mess deck. This was flooded to a depth of 2½| feet in oil fuel; also battery gas had escaped from the switchboard room. The ladder having been blown away, he jumped down into the mess deck, not knowing whether it was intact, and passed up two men. Calling for assistance, he was joined by Lieutenant Humphreys and A.B.s. Collins, Thomas and Abrahams. After the mess deck had been cleared, he led the party into the stoker petty officers' mess. The bulkhead had been shattered, and bedding and curtains were smouldering on top of the oil fuel. Bodies were pulled out from under the wreckage, and passed up on deck. During the whole of this time, he might in the darkness have fallen into the oil fuel tanks below or into the sea. By his gallant behaviour he saved the lives of Stoker Petty Officers Lott, May and Fenley, Stoker Neil and A.B. Oliffe.

* Special promotion for services at Jutland: "In charge of the transmitting room the working of which was in every way admirable. Showed coolness in dangerous situations."
** This officer was First Assault Group Commander, ‘S One’, and latterly my [= R.Adm. A.G. Talbot] Chief Staff Officer. Throughout he has shown very high organisational ability and kept a level head and a cheerful outlook through the very trying times both prior to D-Day and off the Far Shore. In the days after the assault, I was able to spend much time on the beaches with complete confidence that the area would be in his safe hands during my absence.
