Back to the HMS Electra crew list

Stuart Austen Buss MVO DSC

Commander

 

I am the son of Commander S. A. Buss who commanded HMS Electra and was mentioned a lot in the book by T. J. Cain. He was killed in the Aegean when in command of HMS Dulverton on 13th November 1943. Sadly, apart from his medals and a few photos, I have few other mementos.

His awards were:

Member of the Royal Victorian Order (MVO)

Distinguished Service Cross (DSC)
