Lieutenant Reginald Wodehouse James Pringle-Nicholson, (19 July, 1902 – ) was an officer in the Royal Navy. He was born Reginald Wodehouse James Nicholson.

As with many men born c. 1899 or later, his Service Records at The National Archives do not reflect activity between 1931 and 1939 or so.

Life & Career

Entered service 15 January, 1916.

In September 1921, Midshipman Nicholson of the destroyer Wryneck was injured in a serious accident. The medical officer was reportedly drunk at the time, and the Admiralty felt that the captain, Reginald Amedroz had failed to act decisively on this fact. Nicholson was able to continue his career, being transferred to Queen Elizabeth.[1]

Nicholson was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant on 15 November, 1924.

He changed his last name to Pringle-Nicholson around 1929.
