P/O Hambley DSM
One of the many 'unsung' heroes of the raid was Petty-Officer Robert Hambley of Lieutenant Bob Nock's ML 298.
This ML's job was to manoeuvre in the estuary narrows, close to where Campbeltown had struck home, and draw fire - which she did at great cost to her crew.
As Cox'n, Hambley's task was to follow Nock's helm instructions in attempting to disrupt the enemy's aim. With both his deck officers dead and the forward gun knocked out, Nock relied on Hambley as the ML attempted to maintain fire from her after gun alone.
Eventually struck in the engine-room and without power, it was time to abandon ship, Hambley ensuring that all spaces were cleared before taking to one of the ML's two Carley Floats to be carried shoreward by the tide.
