Captain (retired) Hugh Percival Buckle (23 February, 1875 – 30 September, 1955) served in the Royal Navy.

Life & Career

Buckle was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant on 22 June, 1897.[1]

Buckle resigned his commission due to private affairs on 18 November, 1898. His resignation's acceptance was cancelled when he requested that it be withdrawn on 27 February, 1899 when the Board took a favourable review of his request.[2]

Buckle was promoted to the rank of Commander on 30 June, 1909.

Buckle was appointed to Vindictive on 5 April, 1910 but was unable to join the ship as he was in ill health. On the 9th, he was admitted to Plymouth Hospital with neurasthenia. After taking some time to stabilise, he was appointed to the armoured cruiser Sutlej on 7 June, 1910. In mid-1911, he joined the Liverpool Coast Guard.[3]

On 1 August, 1914, Buckle was lent to the Liverpool Naval Centre. He worked there until being appointed to the first class protected cruiser Crescent on 11 May, 1915.[4]

On the night of 7/8 February, 1918, Orbita sank the collier Dorisbrook, which had been servicing Orbita periodically over the last month, in a collision. This resulted in a Court of Enquiry and Buckle received an expression of Their Lordships' displeasure.[5][6]

On 30 April, 1918, Buckle was suffering from neurasthenia at Haslar Hospital. On 6 June, he was declared fit for shore service, and on 18 September, fit for general service.[7]

Buckle was placed on the Retired List at his own request with the rank of Captain on 17 August, 1921.[8]
