Another photo of Captain F.J.Walker, on the bridge of HMS STORK, with a very young looking Lieutenant, making a fine study in youth and experience. The image is on the back cover of 'The U-Boat Hunters' by Anthony Watts.

Classic image Graham, that kind of inner determination look about the two of them!

Vague memory that this image was also in my copy of 'The Golden Horseshoe', the story of U99 and its Captain, Otto Kretschmer. An equally good read.

Is this the famed Capt Walker who sailed on a HMS vessel out of Gladstone Dock, Liverpool during WWII ?
I have heard that when sailing he used to play "A Hunting We Will Go" over the ships tannoy/loudspeaker system.
A truly great character.

Had this great man survived the war and beyond, I wonder how he might have influenced post war anti submarine warfare thinking?

A very good point Stevo. Yes it is true that he used to play 'A hunting we will go' when in command of HMS Starling. Quite a character, bet he was a bit of a handful with discipline!
