Gordon Charles Steele

M, b. 1 November 1892, d. 4 January 1981
     Gordon Charles Steele was born on 1 November 1892 in Exeter.1 He was the son of Henry William Steele R.N. and Selina May Symonds. Gordon Charles Steele died on 4 January 1981 at the age of 88.1

Commander Gordon Charles Steele, VC, RN (retired). Captain-Superintendent of the Thames Nautical College, HMS Worcester, off Greenhithe, from 1929 to 1957, who was awarded the Victoria Cross for conspicuous gallantry, skill and devotion to duty during the attack on Kronstadt Harbour in August, 1919, died on January 4 at the age of 88.

Born on November 1, 1892, at Exeter, Steele was the son of Captain H. W. Steele, RN. His mother was Selina May, daughter of the late Major-General Symonds, RMLI. After receiving his early education at Vale College, Ramsgate, he became a cadet in HMS Worcester, Nautical Training College. His early service at sea was in the ships of the P&O Steam Navigation Company. He obtained very early his master mariner's certificate, and in 1909 he received a commission in the Royal Naval Reserve. When the war broke out in 1914 he was serving in HMS Conqueror as acting sub-lieutenant, and in the following October was transferred to the submarine service, the ships in which he served being the DS and the E22. It was his good fortune to be appointed to the first Q boat, or mystery ship, commission, and for his part in sinking an enemy submarine in August 1915. he was mentioned in dispatches.

He was in charge of the concealed guns in the Q ship Baralong when his ship took by surprise the German submarine U27 which had attacked the steamer Nicosian. The U-boat was destroyed. As a reward for his gallantry he was transferred from the Royal Naval Reserve to the list of sub-lieutenants RN. Three months later he was promoted to lieutenant. In that rank he served in the Royal Oak at the Battle of Jutland, and later he was appointed to the Iron Duke. During the latter part of the war, Steele held independent commands. He was captain of HMS P63, a patrol boat, from 1917 to 1919, when he took over command of HMS Cornflower, a sloop. His great chance came, however, in August, 1919, when he was in command of a coastal motor boat during the raid on Kronstadt Harbour. The deeds of conspicuous gallantry and skill which won for Steele the Victoria Cross were performed on August 18, 1919. Lieutenant Steele (as he then was) was second-in-command of HM Coastal Motor Boat No 88. in the course of the operations against the Bolsheviks it was necessary for the motor boat to enter Kronstadt Harbour. Soon after entering, the commanding officer. Lieutenant Dayrell-Reed, RN, was shot through the head, and in consequence the boat was thrown off her course. Immediately Steele became aware of what had happened he took the wheel and steadied the boat. After lifting his commanding officer away from the steering wheel, he got his boat in a convenient position for launching a torpedo at the Bolshevik battleship Andrei Pervozanni. He fired at a range of one hundred yards, and had the satisfaction of seeing his torpedo find its mark. Not content with that, he turned his attention to the battleship Petropavlovsk which was overlapped by the Andrei Pervozanni, and was partly obscured by smoke which was coming from the stricken ship. To get a clear view of the Petropavlovsk, he had an extremely difficult manoeuvre to perform, but the evolution was skilfully and successfully carried out, and the Petropavlovsk was torpedoed. It became imperative that Steele should make his way from the harbour as quickly as possible if he were to save his boat. He had only just room enough to turn in order to regain the entrance of the harbour, but he managed to do so with success. All this time his motor boat was drawing a heavy and concentrated fire from the line of forts. Nevertheless he passed close to the forts firing his machine guns all the way, and passing out of the harbour he saved his ship. The award to him of the Victoria Cross was notified in the London Gazette of November 11, 1919. After that gallant exploit he returned to more peaceful duties, and in 1923, when in command of Patrol Boat No 31, at Portland, he was promoted to the rank of lieutenant-commander. He always had an aptitude for languages, and it was after this that he fulfilled an ambition by becoming a Naval Interpreter in Russian. In March, 1925, as a specialist in anti-submarine duties, he was selected for duty on the staff of the Rear-Admiral of Submarines at Gosport. His next appointment was to the new cruiser Cornwall in which he served as first lieutenant-commander from 1927 to 1928 on the China station. His last appointment in the Navy was to HMS Egmont for duty at Malta. He served there for four months, when he was selected to be Captain-Superintendent of the Thames Nautical Training College, HMS Worcester, off Greenhithe, the ship in which he himself received his early training for the sea. He published several books including Electrical Knowledge for Ships' Officers; The Story of the Worcester; To me, God is real; About My Father's Business and In my Father's House.1
