Lt. F. R. Carr, RN Empty
PostSubject: Lt. F. R. Carr, RN   Lt. F. R. Carr, RN EmptySun Nov 07, 2010 4:46 pm

Frederick Ralph Carr, born 16 May 1844.
Sub-Lieutenant, 15 February, 1864.
Lieutenant, 21 April 1866.

Lieutenant (Gunnery) F. W. Carr was the Senior Lieutenant of the Naval Brigade landed from HMS Boadicea. At the Battle of Gingindlovu he was in charge of the Naval Brigade holding the left front (N.E.) corner of the square with one company of sailors and one company of marines, totaling 90 men, and two rocket tubes.

Lt. Carr served ashore from 19 Mar '79 to 30 Jun '79. SAGS Medal with 1879 Clasp; M.I.D.; entitled to SAGS Medal with 1879 Clasp. Listed on the Medal Roll. Promoted to Commander October 1879. (Promotion later cancelled.)

(From Bulletin of other State Intelligence for the year 1880, p292.)
"Admiralty, 2nd March, 1880
The annnoucement contained in the London Gazette of the 7th November, 1879, of the promotion of Lieutenant Frederick Ralph Carr to the rank of Commander of Her Majesty's Fleet, is hereby cancelled."

No reason is given for the cancellation.

The Navy List for 1886 (December) shows Carr on the list of Retired Lieutenants.

He later became a Colonel with the 1st Devonshire Volunteer Artillery.

Carr died 26th November, 1908.

Does anyone know what happened between October, 1879 and March, 1880 that would cause the Admiralty to cancel Carr's promtion?

Petty Officer Tom
