From The Nottinghamian April 1941:
Gaining his 1st Cricket Colours in his last term, he left school from the Remove Form and joined the firm of JB Lewis and Sons, Hosiery Manufacturers, where his father was a Director. There, as at school, he soon became well liked and respected, and by the time he joined up in June 1940, he held an important post in the firm. He joined the Navy as a volunteer before the time came for his registration and making excellent progress in his training he was soon posted to his first ship as a coder. This was the destroyer from which he was subsequently reported as missing.
