spent it in command of a shore based Naval establishment on the island of Trinidad in the West Indies.The Island was then "lend-leased to the Americans.His task was to ensure the safe arrival and departure of oil tankers to and from the Trinidad Oilfields.The problem was German U-Boats,which freely refuelled and refreshed themselves in nearby neutral Venezuela.The protection was from underwater steel netting,to keep the submarines out,and hopefully ensnare them.They kept many out,but only ever caught one,but at that moment everyone was away attending one of the Officer's Weddings.They rushed back on the news, but by the time they had got there,the U-Boat had freed itself.In civilian life,he was an official at The Bank Of England"
