Captain Guy Ouchterlony Twiss

Guy Ouchterlony Twiss was born on 19 October, 1834 in Mauritius. He began his career in the Royal Navy in 1849 as a Navel Cadet on HMS Pilot (Sail Sloop, East Indies Squadron). He made Mate (Sub-Lt.) 17 Jun ’54; promoted to Lieutenant 22 Feb ‘56; and to Commander 11 Apr ’66. He received his promotion to Captain on 31 Dec ’76; Promoted to Rear Admiral on the Retired List; 8 Sep ’91 and promoted to Vice Admiral on the Retired List 16 Sep ’97. Died in 1918(?).

Jul 1848 Appointment to HMS Pilot announced
5 Apr 1855 Mate on HMS Rattler (Steam Sloop, East Indies)
11 Mar 1856 Lieutenant on HMS Pique (East Indies and China Station)
16 Aug 1859 Lieutenant on HMS Neptune (Mediterranean)
27 Apr 1863 Lieutenant on HMS Royal Oak (Mediterranean)
19 Jun 1866 Commandeer on HMS Royal Alfred (Portsmouth)
3 Aug 1867 Commander on HMS Warrior (Channel Squadron)

28 Aug 1875 Commander on HMS Hibernia (Malta)
16 Mar 1879 Arrived on RMS ‘Pretoria’ in Durban to be the Principal Naval Transport Officer. The call for reinforcements in South Africa created the need for a harbor master to control the arrival and unloading of men and supplies from many transport ships. Twiss also assisted at Port Durnford , from the sea, in the unloading of supplies there. While in command of the steam tug “Koodoo” on 3 July, he attempted to land General Wolseley on the shore, but was unsuccessful due to the rough seas, and had to return him the HMS Shah.
30 Dec 1879 Captain on HMS Serapis (Troopship)
1885 Captain on Belleisle (Kingstown District, Coastguard Service)
