Richard Ivor Pulleyne
Life & Career
Born in Leeds.
Pulleyne was junior officer and sole survivor aboard B 2 when she sank after being rammed by S.S. Amerika on 4 October, 1912. He was fortunate in that he was on the conning tower at the time of the collision.
Pulleyne was not given the chance to bask in his success, as he lost his life when E 34 was lost with all hands on 20 July, 1918. His body washed ashore at Vlieland on 30 July, 1918 and was buried with full military honours.
