In 1942 he went into the Royal Navy and commanded a motor torpedo boat....

I remember the very first episode of the Avengers...Where did the years go?

I remember Patrick in the Avengers which was shown on Granada TV at 10pm
on Saturday nights in the sixties.
A great series supported by his assistant Honor Blackman.
The perfect gentleman.

Rest in Peace Patrick.

The word dapper must have been invented for this man. He was the epitome of cool in The Avengers.

During the Second World War he served as Sub-Lieutenant and Navigation Officer on MTB 415, before being promoted First Lieutenant of MTB 434. His command was sunk by gunfire from a German surface craft off Normandy on 9 July 1944, although he was not onboard at the time, having been hospitalised earlier with bronchitis.
