Birth: 1918
Death: Nov. 29, 1940

Leading Cook (O), P/MX 53821, HMS Javelin, Royal Navy, son of Arthur & Daisy Narramore, brother of Vernon (Larry) and Peggy Narramore. During the night of 29 November 1940, HMS Javelin along with other destroyers, was on patrol in the English Channel having left their port at Plymouth. The flotilla was under the temporary command of a visiting senior officer, Mountbatten. During the night they encountered three German destroyers, the 'Karl Galster', the 'Steinbrink' and the 'Lody'. The flotilla attacked the other destroyers head on until a disastrous manoeuvre by Mountbatten in turning at 90 degrees exposed the side of the British ships to enemy fire. Two torpedos from the 'Lody' struck the 'Javelin', blew off her bows and stern, and reduced her overall length by a third. Three officers and 43 ratings were killed. His name is shown on the Portsmouth Naval Memorial at Southsea.
