Naval officer's service record:
Louis Mountbatten

The name of Louis Mountbatten, the British naval leader and last viceroy of India, is most readily associated with the Second World War. However, as his detailed service record illustrates, Mountbatten's career in the Royal Navy stretched back as far as 1913. He served first as a midshipman and then as an acting sub-lieutenant during the First World War, earning the praise of his superior officers as 'keen and intelligent' and of 'Ab Av' ('above average') ability.
