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.

* For daring, leadership and address in command of the party which boarded Altmavk while the ships were manoeuvring under high power, changing relative positions and not in full contact, so that he had to leap a fathom to reach her. He pulled up the petty officer next behind him, who had jumped short and hung by his hands, made fast the hawser, and, cheering, led his party at the double to the bridge. Having disarmed such enemy officers as carried firearms, he took over from a German first the starboard then the port telegraph and set it to 'Stop’ instead of ‘Full Speed Ahead,’ so that Altmark could not ram Cossack.
