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.

* In May that year Lieutenant Taylor was in command of the C-Class submarine HMS ‘C-24’, engaged in coastal defence duties. A plan was devised whereby the armed trawler ‘Taranaki’ would tow ‘C-24’ to where U-boats were known to be hunting. On June 23 ‘U-40’ was sighted and while the ‘Taranaki’ acted as a decoy vessel, Taylor on ‘C-24’ fired a torpedo that sank the U-boat.
