Life & Career
Chevallier was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant on 15 September, 1899.
Chevallier was promoted to the rank of Commander on 22 June, 1911.
Chevallier was appointed to the battleship H.M.S. Ajax in mid February, 1913 and remained in her until being appointed in command of the monitor Raglan on 22 May, 1916. In June 1917, he was blamed for irregularities in maintaining her victualling accounts. He was charged some amount of money to rectify things. It is not clear, but it is either £5 or £5,000!
