Royal Marine (RM) Officers
1939-1945

  

Looking for details on a RM 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.

Bell,
Arnold
A. Bell (Photo courtesy of Mr Ed Bell)
Son (with three sisters and two brothers) of John Thomas Bell (1878-1941), and Alice Hall (1880-1969).
Husband of Muriel Hannah Bell, of Chatham; one son.

His son writes: "My father Capt. Arnold Bell RM was stationed at HMS Nile between May and November  1944. In October he took a detachment of Royal Marines to the Greek port of Piraeus to keep law and order in the interim period between the German's withdrawal and the establishment of civil law. The following is a quote from an ex-Marine who lived in New Zealand and was a member of the detachment. "This party had the exciting designation of 'Haddock' and consisted of two sergeants, four corporals and 46 marines who gathered at Sphinx. Training was commmennced on commando principle with emphasis on -riots and street fighting etc." The detachment landed on Greek soil on October 12 and remained until the beginning of November when they were ordered to board HMS Easton and harrass the Germans remaining on the island of Milos. An attack on a radar unit sited on Mount Topakas, on the South West corner of Milos was planned and executed on the night of November 13/14 during which my father and three Royal Marines were killed. The Radar unit ceased to operate from that date, two German prisoners were taken and a number of Greek teenagers who wished to fight for the Allies were taken on board Easton."
