Temporary Lieutenant R.N.R. John Chapman, ( – ) served in the Royal Naval Reserve.

Life & Career

On 9 November 1916, he was appointed to {UK-Attentive}} as a Temporary Sub-Lieutenant R.N.R. for instruction in Paddle Minesweeping.[1]

Chapman was appointed to Colleen for Hurst on 24 September, 1917 and re-appointed upon being promoted to the rank of Temporary Lieutenant R.N.R. on 9 November, 1917. It is not certain that he was in command, however, until being re-appointed to the ship once more on 24 January, 1919.[2]

He left Hurst in July, 1919 when he was admitted to South Queensferry to be treated for syphilis, which required his transfer to Haslar on 1 August. He was found fit on 20 August and soon thereafter put in command of Gatwick. His time in this ship would soon be abbreviated when he was granted leave to sit for Board of Trade certification as Ex. Master. He was eventually demobilised on 14 January, 1920.[3]
