Henry Wilfred Eldon Manisty
Life & Career
Captain Constantine H. Hughes-Onslow, who served as Second Naval Member on the Commonwealth Naval Board with Manisty, described him thus:
Such a man ought to have outward signs of greatness. Manisty has none. He is unusually boyish in appearance and manner. He has a fine sense of humour, and the sailor's ability to make the best of things, and get there somehow. Yet he is the soul of the naval movement in Australia. His name—those who know declare—ought to be Mainstay, instead of Manisty.
Manisty was appointed an Additional Member of the Third Class, or Companion, in the Civil Division of the Most Honourable Order of the Bath (C.B.) on 1 January, 1919.
