Rear-Admiral Guy Langton Warren, C.B. (13 February, 1888 – 1961) was an officer in the Royal Navy.

Life & Career

Born in Boston, Massachusetts, Warren gained one and a half months' time on passing out of Britannia in May of 1904.

In 1906, he lost three months' time for "ragging". In February of 1908 he was in Haslar Hospital for a knee injury, and there was some confusion as his papers were signed by someone not found on the Medical Register. On 23 March 1908 he was found fit and sent to rejoin H.M.S. Excellent.

Warren was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant on 30 June, 1910.[1]

Warren was appointed in command of the destroyer Nugent on 13 June, 1917.[2]

Warren was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant-Commander on 30 June, 1918.[3]

Post-War

On 3 September 1919, Verulam was mined and lost. A Court of Enquiry found that blame attached to Warren in the loss.

Warren was promoted to the rank of Commander on 30 June, 1924.[4]

Warren was promoted to the rank of Captain on 30 June, 1931.[5]

Two charges against Warren in a 1934 Court of Enquiry into the stranding of Pangbourne were proved, and he was sentenced to be severely reprimanded.

Warren received a poor report on Galatea in 1936, for which blame was specifically attached to him.[6]

World War II

Warren worked with assault ships in command of Quebec II during the war, and participated in the Dieppe Raid and in helping shape the success of other amphibious operations in Europe.

Warren was promoted to the rank of Rear-Admiral on 8 July, 1941 and placed on the Retired List the next day.[7]
