Commander Rushton became Acting Captain after the Battle on the promotion of Commodore Goodenough to Flag Rank.
He later changed his name to Edward Astley Astley-Rushton, and was known as such by the time he became a Vice-Admiral.

In the second photo he is seen as a full Captain, and the third records his time as Captain of HMAS Melbourne in the Grand Fleet from December 1916 to February 1919 (with cat).
