Godfrey Place VC – An Exceptional Naval Officer
by Paul Watkins

Date: Thursday 23 January 2014

Lieutenant Godfrey Place was in command of the Midget Submarine X7 when it attacked the German Battleship Tirpitz in September 1943 – ‘one of the most audacious and gallant acts in the annals of the Royal Navy’.

Godfrey Place has strong links with Sherborne, having owned Mabers for nearly 20 years.
