Robert Lewis Way
Life & Career
Born in Mayfair, London, the son of Captain John L. Way, R.N..
Way was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant on 15 March, 1899.
Way's appointment in Blake proved rather epic in duration, not ending until 30 March, 1918 when he was appointed in command of Aquarius. In 1919, the ship seemingly lost a 25-foot cutter which had been secured but not hoisted aboard in its davit and Way was cautioned to be more careful in his supervision of the boats. Way's command of Aquarius ended on 17 February, 1920 and he was placed on the books of Victory for unpaid time. No further appointments appeared and Way was placed on the Retired List due to non-service on 23 March, 1922 and was promoted to the rank of Captain (retired) on 29 September, 1922.
