Commander Joseph Armand Shuter, M.V.O. (27 May, 1876 – 16 September, 1915) served in the Royal Navy.

Life & Career

Born in Victoria, New South Wales, Shuter gained eight months' time on passing out of Britannia. He was appointed to Royal Arthur in the Pacific on 2 March, 1893.[1]

Shuter was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant on 30 June, 1899.[2]

Shuter was awarded an M.V.O., Fourth Class, gazetted 21 May, 1905.[3]

Shuter left command of the gunboat Redbreast on 11 March, 1910 and hopped on Andromeda at Aden for passage home. On 14 May, he joined Defiance for a five week Senior Course in torpedoes.[4]

Shuter was promoted to the rank of Commander on 31 December, 1913.[5]

Shuter was superseded in command of the Alarm Class torpedo gunboat Leda on 7 January, 1914 and presently went to a Signals and War Course, borne on the books of President. On 20 June, 1914 he was appointed to Tyne, additional, for command of reduced T.Bs. and T.B.Ds., possibly also including command of T.B. 25. However, on 2 November, 1914, Shuter was discharged to Queensferry Hospital, never to return. The remainder of his naval career would be a series of hospitalisations and scheduled resurveys that revealed a deteriorating condition stemming from a disease of the liver.[6]

Shuter died at age 41 on Manchester Street in Manchester Square.
