Reginald Wodehouse James Pringle-Nicholson
Life & Career
Entered service 15 January, 1916.
In September 1921, Midshipman Nicholson of the destroyer Wryneck was injured in a serious accident. The medical officer was reportedly drunk at the time, and the Admiralty felt that the captain, Reginald Amedroz had failed to act decisively on this fact. Nicholson was able to continue his career, being transferred to Queen Elizabeth.
Nicholson was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant on 15 November, 1924.
He changed his last name to Pringle-Nicholson around 1929.
