Lieutenant George Edward Montagu Blackmore (10 August, 1883 – ) was an officer in the Royal Navy.

Life & Career

Born in Cheyne next to the Sea, Norfolk, Blackmore was the son of Reverend J. C. Blackmore, rector. He gained four months' time on passing out of Britannia.

In 1905, he was removed from a torpedo boat over mess debts.

Blackmore was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant on 31 December, 1905.

Blackmore was appointed in command of the first-class torpedo boat T.B. 80 on 12 January, 1906.[1]

Issues with "carelessness in money matters" prompted a rare expression of "grave displeasure" in 1908. In May 1909 further irregularities were reported.

Blackmore resigned to avoid a Court Martial on 9 May, 1909. He offered his services in September 1914, but was refused on 6 November.
