Admiralty, S.W.,
15th September, 1916
The following despatch has been received from Admiral Sir John R. Jellicoe, G.C.B., G.C.V.O., Commander - in - Chief, Grand Fleet: —
Iron Duke,
23rd August, 1916.
SIR,—
With reference to my despatch of 24th June, 1916, I have the honour to bring to the notice of the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty the names of the following officers who are recommended for honours and special commendation.

Where all carried out their duties so well it is somewhat invidious and difficult to select officers for special recognition. As regards the Flag Officers, I would again draw the attention of their Lordships to the remarks made in that despatch on the subject of their services, and I would recommend for honours: —

Name Ship (not on original document)
Admiral Sir Cecil Burney, K.C.B., K.C.M.G. MARLBOROUGH
Vice-Admiral Sir Thomas Henry Martyn Jerram, K.C.B. KING GEORGE V
Vice-Admiral Sir Frederick Charles Doveton Sturdee, Bart., K.C.B., C.V.O., C.M.G. BENBOW

Rear-Admiral Ernest Frederic Augustus Gaunt, C.M.G. COLOSSUS
Rear-Admiral Osmond De Beauvoir Brock, C.B. PRINCESS ROYAL


Although Rear-Admiral Evan-Thomas has but recently received the C.B., I would draw attention to the fact that he commands a Battle Squadron which was closely engaged, and that he is, with the exception of Rear-Admiral Heath, the senior Rear-Admiral in the Grand Fleet.


Rear-Admiral Herbert Leopold Heath, C.B., M.V.O., would have been recommended for an honour had he not so recently received the C.B.


Commodore Charles Edward Le Mesurier whose squadron was handled with great ability.


Rear-Admiral Trevylyan Dacres Willes Napier, C.B., M.V.O., would have been recommended for an honour had he not so recently received the C.B.

Rear-Admiral William Edmund Goodenough, C.B., M.V.O., who with great tenacity kept touch with the enemy's battle fleet during the afternoon of 31st May, and
Commodore Edwyn Sinclair Alexander-Sinclair, C.B., M.V.O., AdC., who first gained touch with the enemy forces, would have been recommended for an honour had they not so recently received the CB.


2. THE REMARKS OF THE FLAG OR COMMANDING OFFICERS OF THE SQUADRONS CONCERNED, IN WHICH I CONCUR, HAVE BEEN INSERTED AFTER THE NAMES OF THE OFFICERS RECOMMENDED IN THE FOLLOWING LIST.


LIST OF OFFICERS RECOMMENDED FOR HONOURS FOR SERVICE IN THE BATTLE OF JUTLAND.

Name Text Ship
Captain Frederic Charles Dreyer, C.B. (Civil), R.N. Commanded and handled the Fleet Flagship most ably during the action. The rapidity with which hitting was established on ships of the enemy's fleet was the result of long and careful organisation and training of the personnel. IRON DUKE
Commander Geoffrey Blake, R.N Gunnery and principal control officer of H.M.S. "Iron Duke," whose zeal, knowledge and devotion to duty throughout the war, and coolness and skill in action resulted in severe damage being inflicted by Iron Duke's 13.5-inch guns on a German battleship of the "Koenig" class in the action off the coast of Jutland on 31st May. -
- Remarks of Admiral Sir Cecil Burney. -
Captain Edmund Percy Fenwick George Grant, R.N. (Commodore, 2nd Class). My Chief of Staff, who afforded me very valuable assistance during the action. -

Captain Lewis Clinton-Baker, R.N The Senior Captain in the First Battle Squadron at the time of the action. His valuable services are worthy of recognition -

- Remarks of Vice-Admiral Sir Martyn Jerram. -
Captain Michael Culme-Seymour, M.V.O., R.N. (now Rear-Admiral). Sub-Divisional Leader. An officer of great experience, who handled his sub-division with excellent judgment throughout the action. -
Captain Hugh Henry Darby Tothill, A.d.C., R.N. Sub-Divisional Leader. Handled his subdivision most skilfully throughout the action, and amply justified the high opinion I have always held of him. -
Captain Frederick Laurence Field, R.N. Handled " King George V." as leader of the line of battle with great skill under very difficult conditions. His previous good services in the Signal School and " Vernon " are well known. -
Deputy Inspector-General Robert Forbes Bowie, R.N. Displayed a high degree of ability during the action in the working of the medical department. -
Engineer Commander William Cory Sanders, R.N. A very capable and zealous officer, who showed great ability throughout the action in the working of the engine-room department. -
Commander Richard Home, R.N. An officer of great ability, who conned " Orion" throughout the action with ability and skill. -
Commander John Walsh Carrington, R.N. An officer of great ability, who conned "King George V." throughout the action with good judgment and prompt decision. He was navigating officer of H.M.S. " Inflexible " in the action off the Falkland Islands and in the Dardanelles. -
- Remarks of Vice-Admiral Sir Doveton Sturdee. -
Captain William Coldingham Masters Nicholson, R.N. (now Rear-Admiral). Took his ship into action in a fine manner, and by the effective gunfire of his command materially assisted in forcing the enemy to retire. -
Engineer Captain John Richardson, R.N. Was personally responsible for the excellent organisation of the engine-room and stokehold departments in every ship of the squadron. The maximum speeds were obtained in all cases without mishap, though in the older ships the authorised horsepower was exceeded. -
Lieutenant-Colonel Charles Edwin Collard, R.M.L.I. Very materially assisted in controlling the gunfire of H.M.S. " Benbow " from an exposed position. This officer has seen much war service previously in East and South Africa. -
Fleet Surgeon Joseph Agnew Moon, R.N. Was responsible for the excellent medical arrangements for dealing with the wounded BENBOW

- in H.M.S. " Benbow," which were very efficient -
Captain Henry Wise Parker, R.N. Was of great assistance to nie as my Flag Captain. He showed great coolness and judgment in his handling of the ship and its fighting power. Captain Parker was Commander of the "Lion" in the Heligoland action of 28th August, 1914. BENBOW
Paymaster Cyril Sheldon Johnson, R.N. Rendered valuable services as my Secretary in keeping records and generally assisting me during the action. His name was mentioned in despatches after the Falkland Islands action. BENBOW
Engineer Commander Robert Spence, R.N. By his general management of the machinery and stokers under his orders in H.M.S. " Vanguard " enabled the ship to be taken into and maintained in action in a most effective manner. VANGUARD
- Remarks of Rear-Admiral Evan-Thomas. -
Captain Edward Montgomery Phillpotts, R.N. At a critical time, when the Fifth Battle Squadron was turning to form astern of the battle-fleet, under a heavy fire, " Warspite," owing to a breakdown in her steering gear, turned towards the enemy, and got into a very dangerous position. She was splendidly handled, however, and got away to the northward clear of the enemy's fire. Also when nearing the Firth of Forth, much damaged, she was attacked by three submarines and was handled in such a manner as to get her safely into port. Captain Phillpotts is the senior captain in the ships of the Fifth Battle Squadron which were engaged, and I strongly recommend him for an honour worthy of his great services. -
Captain Maurice Woollcombe, R.N - -
Captain Arthur William Craig, R.N. The Rear-Admiral Commanding reports that the ships under his orders were handled and fought by their Captains in the manner one would expect from those officers and in accordance with the best traditions of the British Navy. -
Commander Humphrey Thomas Walwyn, R.N. Commander Walwyn, from the moment the first shell struck the ship, managed to be everywhere where attention was necessary in putting out fires, plugging holes, shoring, etc., with the fire brigade and repair parties. Considering the size of the ship and the damage sustained, and also the fact that he was keeping the Captain fully informed of her condition, the work effected by Commander Walwyn in the short space of time was marvellous, and the Captain considers it greatly due to his prompt action that much water was prevented from access into the port wing and main engine rooms. -
Rev. Anthony Pollen (Roman Catholic Chaplain). The Reverend Anthony Pollen carried men injured by severe burns from the battery deck to the distributing station, he himself being severely burned at the time. Aged 56. -
Lieutenant. John Gordon Cliff-McCulloch, R.N.R. Lieutenant Cliff-McCulloch was in charge of the port battery, and immediately went across and in a short space of time the fire had been got under and the situation was in hand, and Nos. 1 and 6 6-inch starboard were ready to open fire in ten minutes from the explosion. This is due to the prompt action taken by Lieutenant McCulloch, and his example had undoubtedly a good effect on the large number of very young men stationed there. -
Commander Henry John Studholme Brownrigg, R.N. Commander Brownrigg took charge of and conducted the operations in connection with dealing with fires and repairs to damage by shell. He was continually in positions of greatest danger, and where the conditions were most trying to the nerves. His example inspired all those under him, and he was largely instrumental in keeping the ship in effective fighting condition to the end of the action, notwithstanding the severe damage from shell fire. -
- Remarks of Rear-Admiral Herbert L. Heath. -
Captain Eustace La Trobe Leatham, R.N. For the very able and efficient manner in which he handled his ship throughout the action. -
Captain John Saumarez Dumaresq, M.V.O., R.N. For the very able and efficient manner in which he handled his ship throughout the action. -
Captain Arthur Cloudesley Shovel Hughes D'Aeth, R.N. For the untiring zeal and energy displayed throughout the action, and during the events preceding and subsequent thereto, when he handled my flagship with marked ability and was of the greatest assistance to me. -
Engineer Captain Arthur Frederick Kingsnorth, R.N. Engineer Captain of the First Cruiser Squadron—recommended by the RearAdmiral Commanding, Second Cruiser Squadron. -
Commander James Geoffry Penrose Ingham, R.N. - -
Engineer Commander Henry Walton Kitching, R.N. - -
- Remarks of Commodore Charles E. Le Mesurier. -
Staff Surgeon Bertram Raleigh Bickford, R.N. For great gallantry and devotion to duty in action. This officer, though severely wounded by a shell splinter, persisted in attending to the wounded, only yielding to a direct order from myself to place himself on the sick list. -
- Remarks of Vice-Admiral Sir David Beatty. -
Captain Rudolf Walter Bentinck, R.N. (Chief of Staff to Vice-Admiral Commanding Battle Cruiser Fleet). For very valuable services in the action and throughout the war. -
Acting Paymaster Frank Todd Spickernell, R.N. (Secretary to the Vice-Admiral Commanding Battle Cruiser Fleet). For very valuable services in the action and throughout the war. -

Lieutenant-Commander Gerald Fortescue Longhurst, R.N. (now Commander). Gunnery Officer of my Flagship. Controlled the fire of "Lion" with greatest coolness, courage and skill, and inflicted immense damage on the enemy. This is the third time he has controlled the fire of " Lion " in action. -
Fleet Surgeon Alexander Maclean, M.B., R.N. Performed his exhausting duties with the greatest zeal and courage. The medical staff was seriously depleted by casualties; the wounded and dying had to be dressed under very difficult conditions on the mess deck, which was flooded with a foot of water from damaged fire mains. Fleet Surgeon Maclean has suffered considerably since the action from his devotion to duty. -
Lieutenant (E.) Stewart Magee Walker, R.N. The command of the mess deck devolved on Lieutenant Walker in the absence on duty of the commander of the ship. He grappled successfully with very difficult and trying situations, putting out extensive fires in a blinding and suffocating atmosphere, saving life from asphyxiation, clearing compartments of water, and flooding magazines. -
Captain Walter Henry Cowan, M.V.O., D.S.O., R.N. Commanded and fought the " Princess Royal " with great skill and gallantry. -
Engineer Lieutenant-Commander Albert Arthur Green Martell, R.N. In charge of all fire and salvage parties, and directed and led them with complete success, setting an example of coolness and vigour of action which unquestionably prevented far more serious damage. -
Artificer Engineer Joseph House, R.N. When the ship was hit and badly damaged, effected repairs to pipes under very difficult circumstances of smoke and darkness, whereby fires were got under which otherwise must have been a very grave danger. -
Captain Henry Bertram Pelly, M.V.O., R.N. Commanded and fought " Tiger" with great skill and gallantry. -
Lieutenant Percy Harrison, R.N.V.R. His work with the fire brigade was beyond praise. He was gassed badly, but continued work until noon the next day, clearing debris, etc., and only gave up when his lungs would stand no more, and he was placed on the sick list. -
Carpenter Lieutenant John Norman Matheson, R.N. Did splendid work below. Although taken to the dressing-station twice, once gassed and once nearly drowned, he insisted on going back to his work, and only rested when ordered by the Commander to do so on the following morning. -
Captain John Frederick Ernest Green, R.N. Commanded and fought " New Zealand " with great skill and gallantry. NEW ZEALAND
Captain Francis William Kennedy, R.N. (now Rear-Admiral). Commanded the Third Battle Cruiser Squadron after the loss of Rear-Admiral Hood, and fought his ship with great skill and gallantry. -
Captain Edward Henry Fitzhardinge Heaton-Ellis, M.V.O., R.N. Commanded and fought "Inflexible" with great skill and gallantry. -
Commander Hubert Edward Dannreuther, R.N. The senior of the two surviving officers of the "Invincible." Up till the moment when the ship blew up Commander Dannreuther controlled the fire of " Invincible " in a manner which produced visible and overwhelming results on the enemy. INVINCIBLE
Captain Bertram Sackville Thesiger, C.M.G., R.N. Assumed command of a Light Cruiser Squadron when " Galatea " was temporarily disabled by shell fire, and fought his ship with great skill and gallantry. -
Captain Charles Blois Miller, R.N. Commanded and fought NOTTINGHAM with great skill and gallantry. -
Lieutenant Arthur Malcolm Peters, R.N. His coolness and clearness on this occasion, and his constant care and attention in regard to the signals and communications of the squadron during the past three years, enabled the fullest advantage to be taken when reporting the enemy's battle fleet. SOUTHAMPTON
Commander Malcolm Henry Somerled Macdonald, R.N. For his coolness in the night action, when he extinguished the fires on mess deck, and his prompt action in preventing the fore magazine from being flooded. DUBLIN

Captain Edward Bamford, R.M.L.I. In after control when it was blown to pieces by a shell burst. Slightly burnt in face and slightly wounded in leg. Then assisted to work one gun with a much reduced crew, and controlled another gun. Assisted in extinguishing a fire, and in general showed great coolness, power of command, judgment and courage, when exposed to a very heavy fire. CHESTER
Lieutenant Frederick Joseph Rutland, R.N., (Flight Lieut., R.N.A.S.). For his gallantry and persistence in flying within close range of four enemy light cruisers, in order to enable accurate information to be obtained and transmitted concerning them. Conditions at the time made low flying necessary. ENGADINE

Name Text Ship
Lieutenant-Commander Laurence Reynolds Palmer, R.N. For his gallantry, when his destroyer was disabled, in proceeding to the assistance of ONSLOW and taking her in tow under heavy shell fire. He succeeded in towing her in a heavy sea until relieved by tugs when in sight of land. DEFENDER

For the extremely gallant way in which he led his division in their attack, first on enemy destroyers and then on their battlecruisers. He finally sighted the enemy battle-fleet, and, followed by the one remaining destroyer of his division (NICATOR), with dauntless courage he closed to within 3,000 yards of the enemy in order to attain a favourable position for firing the torpedoes. While making this attack, NESTOR and NICATOR were under concentrated fire of the secondary batteries of the High Sea Fleet. NESTOR Nestor was subsequently sunk.
NESTOR
Major Francis John William Harvey, R.M.L.I. Recommended for posthumous Victoria Cross

Lieutenant-Commander Gordon Alston Coles, R.N. The commander of his division speaks highly of the way he conned his ship. AMBUSCADE fired three torpedoes, and the rapid reloading under fire reflects great credit on all concerned, and proves the ship is in a high state of efficiency. AMBUSCADE
Commander Loftus William Jones, R.N. Recommended for posthumous honour.
For fighting his ship until she sank after having been seriously wounded.
SHARK
Acting Sub-Lieutenant Newton James Wallop William-Powlett, R.N. (now SubLieutenant). Very strongly recommended.

Commander Harold Ernest Sulivan, R.N. As second in command of the flotilla he manoeuvred his half very ably during the daytime, and at night, when CASTOR could make no signals owing to damage by gunfire, he very ably turned his half-flotilla and kept clear of the first half-flotilla manoeuvring.

OFFICERS RECOMMENDED FOR PROMOTION.
Commanders to Captain.

Name Text Ship
Walter Lingen Allen. H.M.S. "Broke" was very badly damaged and casualties very great, but the morale seems to have been unshaken and the ship was successfully steamed back to port. BROKE
The Hon. Arthur Lionel Ochoncar Forbes Sempill. A very able executive officer, who had the arrangements for fire, repair and other parties extremely well organised, and who was of great help throughout the action. VALIANT
Joseph Charles Walrond Henley Admiral Sir Cecil Burney reports: —
Commander Henley rendered me very valuable assistance as my Flag-Commander during the action, and has done very valuable work in the gunnery training of the squadron. He is a most excellent and capable officer. He has served as my Flag Commander and Second in Command of my Flagship during the past five years, and was of the greatest assistance to me in the occupation and administration of Scutari in 1913. He has been previously recommended for promotion by me.
MARLBOROUGH
Edward Astley Rushton Displayed great promptitude and powers of leadership, especially during and after the night action of 31 May, in which SOUTHAMPTON suffered considerably in casualties and damage. Was skilful and resourceful in effecting temporary repairs in a rising sea. Strongly recommended. SOUTHAMPTON
Berwick Curtis Carried out an operation on the night of 31st May—1 June with conspicuous skill, gallantry and success. ABDIEL

Page 9074
Name Text Ship
George William McOran Campbell Throughout the various actions handled his division with great ability, sinking an enemy destroyer with his division. Attacked enemy battle squadron in company with flotilla, and undoubtedly assisted in blowing up one enemy battleship. OBEDIENT
Arthur Goodenough Craufurd The captain of the " Tiger " reports that he cannot speak too highly of the valuable and untiring work of this officer between decks under the most painful and trying conditions. TIGER
The Hon. Reginald Aylmer Ranfurley Vice-Admiral Sir David Beatty reports:
" Was most valuable in observing the effect of our fire, thereby enabling me to take advantage of the enemy's discomfiture."
LION
Francis Arthur Marten. Vice-Admiral Sir David Beatty reports:
" Was of great assistance to the Commodore throughout the action. The work of the light cruisers was very much to be commended."
GALATEA


Lieutenant-Commanders to Commander

Name Text Ship
Guy Charles Cecil Royle Admiral Sir Cecil Burney reports:
"It was entirely owing to his organisation and work that the ship fired so extremely well, quickly and accurately, during the action, especially so after she had been struck by a torpedo and took up a considerable list. He is a very efficient and capable officer."
MARLBOROUGH
Geoffrey Charles Candy Strongly recommended by Vice-Admiral Sir Martyn Jerram for his work in connection with the wireless telegraphy of the squadron. KING GEORGE V
Henry Purdon Boyd Recommended by Vice-Admiral Sir Doveton Sturdee for valuable work. TEMERAIRE
Richard Wyville Bromley. Remained exposed outside the conning tower, and, in spite of being wounded in leg, arm and neck, took his captain personal reports of the various damages suffered and got the ship in tow afterwards. WARRIOR
Paul Whitfield (now prisoner of war in Germany). In command of " Nomad," made a most gallant attack on the enemy battle-cruisers, after having assisted to drive off an enemy flotilla which was endeavouring to attack our battle-cruisers. "Nomad" was disabled by shell fire from the enemy battlecruisers, and subsequently sank. NOMAD
Gerald Fortescue Longhurst Gunnery officer of "Lion." This officer controlled the fire of "Lion" with the greatest coolness, courage and skill, and inflicted immense damage on the enemy. LION
Cecil Burnaby Prickett Gunnery officer of " Princess Royal." Controlled the fire of "Princess Royal" under very difficult conditions with conspicuous success. This is the third time he has controlled the fire of a battle-cruiser in action. A most efficient and resourceful officer. Strongly recommended. PRINCESS ROYAL
Lachlan Donald Ian MacKinnon First Lieutenant and gunnery officer. By his zeal and skill obtained excellent results. Under his control the firing of the ship was accurate and rapid INDOMITABLE
Charles Gwillim Robinson In command of " Engadine." Was prompt in sending up a seaplane to scout. Handled his ship in a skilful and seamanlike manner, and towed " Warrior " for 75 miles, subsequently succeeding in taking off her crew, thus saving their lives. ENGADINE
Geoffrey Corlett. Led his division into action in a most gallant manner and fought a successful action with enemy destroyers, in which they were forced to retire. NARBOROUGH
John Cronyn Tovey For the persistent and determined manner in which he attacked enemy ships as occasion offered, even though his destroyer was disabled by shell fire and unable to proceed at more than 10 knots ONSLOW
Robert Stedman MacFarlan This officer's coolness, ability and resource, especially after he had had a miraculous escape in the torpedo control tower, was most praiseworthy, and the fact that very few communications and lighting failed is entirely due to this officer WARSPITE
Stephen Dowell Tillard. Recommended for good service in action. -
Errol Manners Executive officer of " Comus" and gunnery officer of the Squadron. An excellent officer, already strongly recommended for promotion, who has contributed very materialty to the good gunnery work of the squadron. -
Reginald Stannus Goff This officer reported immediately presence of enemy. Subsequently he exhibited initiative with success, and eventually escorted "Porpoise" back to harbour and berthed her alongside in a most seamanlike manner. -
Clarence Walter Eyre Trelawny This officer, by skilful handling of his ship, managed to ram an enemy cruiser instead of being rammed by her, thereby saving his ship. He showed great coolness and afterwards successfully returned to harbour with his ship in a very damaged condition. -
John Ouchterlony Barren. This officer stood by the " Shark " under a very heavy fire, and although engine-room was wrecked and steering gear broken down and the ship a practical wreck, he successfully, by the aid of " Nonsuch," returned into harbour. -
Gerald Charles Wynter Seeing " Castor " being engaged with two enemy ships, closed them and fired a torpedo at the second enemy ship. This was followed by an explosion. It may be taken for certain that it was " Magic's " torpedo that struck the second ship in the enemy's line. -
Eric Quintin Carter Handled his ship with skill and judgment, as is usual with this officer. -

This very promising officer has served as 1st and (G) of "Calliope" since the ship commissioned, and has been of the very greatest assistance to me in every way, while a large portion of the credit due for the gunnery efficiency of the ship is his.
