Lieutenant (Basil Charles) Godfrey Place, VC, DSC (1921-1994)
A three-quarter-length portrait of Place, seated with arms folded, in a blue roll-necked sweater and dark green trousers. In 1942, as a 22-year-old Royal Naval lieutenant, Place commanded the midget submarine X7, which with three others (each with a crew of four), was towed by conventional submarine from Scotland to make an attack on the German battleship 'Tirpitz', in Kaa Fjord, northern Norway.
