Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve (RCNVR) Officers
1939-1945

Looking for details on a RCNVR 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. Dates are given as day-month-year, so 09.11.1944 is 9 November 1944. More explanation & other abbreviations can be found at the help page

His son writes: "His father, Jeffry Hall Brock (1850-1915), was the founding president of the Great West Life Assurance Co. of Winnipeg, and Dad began work there in 1913 after attending several colleges in Ontario. In 1915 he was commissioned as a second lt. (general service) but soon transferred to the RN as a S.Lt. and served for a time as a Signals officer in the Mediterranean, being the officer in that command to receive the signal informing that fleet the Great War had ended. He went back to work at the Great West Life, married Kathleen Head on Sept 27, 1926 and that union produced five children - including R. Rees Brock QC who practised law with the venerable Winnipeg law firm Thompson Dilts, from 1953 to 1974 before moving to Vancouver. Dad was a founding officer of the RCNVR in Winnipeg in 1923, meeting at first in the local fire hall. In the 1930s, Dad was sent to Montreal to set up the Accident and Health Department for the Great West and became CO of the RCNVR there, creating good relations with CP Steamships, and rising to be the first commander in the reserves. With the outbreak of WW II, he went on active service, going to be Commanding Officer Naval Divisions in Toronto, becoming a captain in 1941 and then commodore in March 1944. At war's end he went back to the Great West in Winnipeg, retired in 1957, and moved out to Vancouver. His health was poor and after much time in Shaughnessy Hospital, he died a shadow of himself in 1964 and was buried with Naval Honours. His wife Kay, lived on until June 1993. "

* For untiring devotion to duty, zeal and cheerfulness under trying conditions, in the face of the enemy. This Officer showed great qualities of leadership and devotion to duty during an attack on a slow convoy in 1941 (HMCS Kenogami). At that time, men and equipment were inadequate and it was primarily due to these efforts that he organized the ship's company into a highly efficient fighting unit. His exemplary conduct was an inspiration to the men working with him.

Coombe,
Sidney John [Melvin]
S.J.M. Coombe

His daughter writes: "From what I remember he was seconded to the Royal Navy for the development of Radar. He was part of a group called "the Kiwanis Group". I believe he eventually was a Lieutenant. He was in Portsmouth (for training?) in mid 1940 then fitting radar in destroyers at Newcastle, Middleborough and Glasgow. In early 1941 he was posted to Londonderry where he organized the radar fitting-out and maintenance base. During 8 months he fitted radar in about 40 destroyers and looked after the maintenance for Belfast and Londonderry. When he left Derry in August 1941 his staff had grown to four officers and about 40 men. Later he went to St. John's NFLD, Halifax and Staten Island New York, the latter base of which he was in charge until he was discharged in July 1945."

His son writes: "My Dad took "early" retirement from the RCN in 1967 due to Hellier's actions. He joined in 1939 (Highland regiment) but soon transferred to the RCN. He was a navigator/observer and flew in Swordfish off of HMS Victorious on the Murmansk run. He also flew Mosquitos doing night work out of Scotland & maybe Ireland and some of the Fairey plane and Avenger (post war?) models. During the Korean War he served on a Tribal Class Destroyer in Korea and they were hit by "Red" shore batteries. During the "Cold War" he had some involvement with NORAD and regularly flew (with his old "May West") on extended world wide search missions for USSR subs. He was also CO on the RCN post wars Frigate La Hulloise. "

4 attacks on Tirpitz 08.44
* For great valour in leading, from the aircraft carrier Formidable, an attack on a Japanese destroyer in Onagawa Wan, in the Japanese Island of Honshu, on August 9, 1945. In the face of fire from shore batteries and a heavy concentration of fire from some five warships, Lieutenant Gray pressed home his attack, flying very low in order to ensure success. Although he was hit and his aircraft was in flames, he obtained at least one direct hit, sinking the destroyer. Lieutenant Gray has shown a brilliant fighting spirit and most inspiring leadership.

From his obituary: "Arthur was born and schooled in Vancouver, graduating from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1934. There being no university-based law school in British Columbia at that time, he attended the Vancouver Law School and articled to G.E. Housser of Walsh Bull and Co. Called to The Bar in 1937, he practiced law in Vancouver prior to enlisting in the RCNVR from 1942 to 1945 serving on the destroyer HMCS Ottawa and commanding the ML 111. In that duty he was commended in the London and Canadian Gazette, "For outstanding zeal, efficiency and devotion to duty while with His Majesty's Canadian Coastal Forces. This Officer at all times displayed high qualities of leadership and example, thereby adding greatly to the efficiency and well-being of the entire Motor Launch Flotilla." This accurately described what was to be his approach to the practice of law and life. In 1946 he became a partner with C.W. Tysoe, ultimately growing the successful and respected firm still affectionately referred to today as Harper Grey Easton. In recognition of his qualities as a barrister and solicitor he was appointed a Queen's Counsel in 1960. While he held the position of Treasurer of the Law Society of British Columbia in 1968, he also served as a Bencher on that governing body for many years before and after. Arthur was instrumental in the creation of the Law Foundation of British Columbia, which was the first in North America, and has been copied by all provinces and states of the USA. The Law Foundation continues to provide significant funding for programs having the objective of improving access to justice. He served as the first Chairman from 1969 to 1975. After the war, Arthur and Darrel lived in Vancouver and in 1954 moved to West Vancouver, becoming founding members of the Capilano Winter Club where they enjoyed curling, and golf at the Capilano Golf & Country Club. They travelled extensively abroad, returning over 20 times to their favourite spots in England and Portugal, as well as trips to New Zealand, Australia, China and Hawaii. Following retirement, winters were spent in Fallbrook, Calif. and summers cruising the B.C. coast. A new adventure began in the early '90s when they moved to the golfing community of Arbutus Ridge on Vancouver Island. In 2002 they returned to West Vancouver, establishing residence in Hollyburn House."
