Very Special Admiral
By his granddaughter MARGY KINMONTH
- ADMIRAL GODFREY lived in Wilmington, Sussex for many years from 1948.
- During the War he was Director of Naval Intelligence.
- Godfrey was made Captain in 1928, Rear Admiral in 1939, Vice-Admiral in 1942 and Admiral in 1945, as well as being made a companion of the Order of Bath in 1939.
- He was also awarded the ‘Order of the Nile’ of Egypt and made a Chevalier of the French Legion d’Honneur.
This promises to be a very riveting talk, on a truly eminent Wilmingtonion.
