commanding officer H16 early 1934
« on: 05 April 2017 08:27:40 AM »
Hello. I have a series of pictures taken in Sfax (Tunisia) when H16 (HMS Daring) made a stop 10th january 1934. On these pictures we can see my grandfather colonel Bougrain (commanding the Spahis regiment in Sfax), and the commanding officer of the H16 (I don't know who he is).  Attached a picture of the 2. From what I can read, Lord Louis Mountbatten assumed command on 29th april 1934. So can someone tell me who was his predecessor ? Thanks for your help.

Commander Thomas Balfour Fellowes commanded HMS Daring from December 1932 until April 1934 ... so it must be him
