Description

John William Radmore was born in Newton Abbot, Devon on 9 Jan 1902 and lived at 34 Kingskerwell Rd., Newton Abbot. Joining the Navy as a Boy Artificer on 27 July 1917, Radmore rose up the ranks between the wars to Engine Room Artificer aboard H.M.S. Iron Duke from 7 June 1939 and the famous H.M.S. Repulse from 9 Jan 1916 to 4 Jan 1939. Changing his name by Deed Poll to John William Cook-Radmore, he served from 24 Nov 1941 to 2 Jan 1945 aboard H.M.S. Rodney, for which he was awarded the D.S.C. Gazetted 1 Jan 1945, with Recommendation dated 14 July 1944: "For outstanding zeal and devotion to duty in H.M.S. RODNEY for two years and nine months, during which time his experience, coupled with energy and drive, have been of the greatest value to the Engine Room Department. He has brought every section to which he has been attached up to a very high state of efficiency, notwithstanding the handicaps of heavy steaming and lack of opportunities for dockyard assistance. During recent operations his conduct was an example to those under him, and whether on or off watch, was always in his section to supervise and repair work being carried out."
