Life & Career

Vereker was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant on 14 November, 1892.

He was appointed as torpedo officer in the battleship H.M.S. Revenge from 29 October, 1901.

In May 1903, he was "not specially recommended" by Captain F. W. Fisher. Vereker persisted, and obtained a moderately positive evaluation from his successor, Captain Edward E. Bradford in May of 1904 which noted Vereker's skills in the French language and "good" torpedo work. Vereker elected to retire on 16 August, 1904.

Vereker was promoted to the rank of Commander on 6 April, 1911.

Though he took some courses and served briefly in the Great War, he was soon deemed unfit and placed back on the Retired List.
