Henry Bruce Wroughton
Early Life & Career
Wroughton was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant on 10 August, 1881.
A Court Martial concluded on 2 September 1892 to resolve a charge that Captain Hulton and Lieutenant Wroughton had by negligence or by default hazarded the second class protected cruiser Forth. Hulton stressed in his defence that he had had no tidal charts in his possession in the event, and Wroughton claimed to have been weakened by internal haemorrhoids to such an extent that he had recently handed his duties to Lt. George Warrender for 48 hours.
He was reported as "not temperate" in an 1893 evaluation.
