Alfred Bayly Prowse
Life & Career
Born in Kingston-on-Thames, the son of Captain James Ferris Prowse, R.N..
Prowse was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant on 31 March, 1903.
On 1 February, 1905 he was appointed to Thames for command of submarines, but as is not uncommon to the era, the submarine(s) are not specified, though Thames appears to have been supporting "A" class boats and B 11 at the time. This work may have continued until 18 August 1908 when he was appointed to Bulwark.
Prowse died when he was washed overboard of C 37.
