C.B. London Gazette 15.9.1916.
Vice-Admiral Arthur Craig-Waller, C.B., was accepted as a Naval Cadet in January 1885, became a Midshipman a year later and was promoted to Lieutenant as a Gunnery Specialist in June 1892. Gaining steady recognition and advancement over the next few years - he became Captain in June 1908 - Craig-Waller was appointed Assistant Director of Naval Ordnance in 1909, in which capacity he served until late 1911.
During the Great War he commanded the Battleships Albermarle and Barham, the latter when she joined the Fifth Battle Squadron when the German High Seas Fleet was brought to action in the North Sea at the Battle of Jutland on 31.5.1916. The Barham was straddled by enemy fire on a number of occasions and lost four Officers and 22 Ratings killed, and another 30 men wounded.
Appointed to the Command of the Renown towards the end of hostilities, Craig-Waller was advanced to Rear-Admiral in November 1919 and retired with the rank of Vice-Admiral in 1922. He died in February 1943.
