Commander George Francis Lyon Labouverie Page, D.S.O., R.N. (20 May, 1881 – 27 October, 1920) served in the Royal Navy.

Life & Career

Born at sea, the son of Paymaster in Chief John L. Page, R.N..

Page was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant on 31 March, 1903.

Post-War

Page was promoted to the rank of Commander on 31 December, 1918.

Page died of a gunshot wound sustained in Ealing, possibly in a car. The Times described his death only as "sudden", and his service record contains illegible comments about there being insufficient evidence to show the cause of the wound, as well as something about "as to charges of immorality at the Lord Nelson Hotel in Milford in respect of which [illeg] was [illeg] if he did not refute them."
