Commander (retired) Reginald Harry Bunyard (2 August, 1883 – ) was an officer in the Royal Navy. His Service Records do not seem to extend into his wartime and post-war service.

Life & Career

Born in East Dulwich, London.

Bunyard was promoted to the rank of Gunner on 14 May, 1910 and to Acting Mate on 18 December, 1913.

He served in Flirt from the outbreak of war until falling ill on 23 March, 1915. At the end of the month, he was placed in the Amazon.

Bunyard was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant on 18 December, 1915.

Bunyard was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant-Commander on 18 December, 1923.

In 1927, he injured his right femur. This seems to have been the consequence of an accident which occurred while Bunyard was under "the influence of drink", which was not characteristic of his service.
