VICE ADMIRAL ALFRED F. B. CARPENTER - SIGNATURE(S) - HFSID 201443

 
VICE ADMIRAL ALFRED F. B. CARPENTER
Signed by the Royal Navy officer awarded the Victoria Cross for the Zeebruge Raid (1918).
Signature: "A. F. B. Carpenter", 4x2½. Royal Navy Vice Admiral Alfred F. B. Carpenter (1881-1955) saw duty in the Boxer Rebellion (1900-1901). During World War I, he served on Admiral Jellicoe's staff (1914-1915) and then as a chief navigator on the British warships Empress of India and Vindictive. In the latter vessel, he earned the Victoria Cross, Britain's highest military honor, for his conduct in the Raid on Zeebrugge (April 1918), a partially successful attempt to block a Belgian harbor used by the German U-boat fleet. He later wrote a book about the raid. Carpenter made several innovations in navigation equipment, commended by both the Royal Navy and the Humane Society (for saving lives.) He commanded British warships through the 1920s. During World War II, he led a section of the Gloucestershire Home Guard. Lightly toned. Light adhesive residue at the corners. Otherwise, fine condition.
