Admiral of the Fleet Bruce Austin Fraser, 1st Baron Fraser of North Cape GCB, KBE (5 February 1888 – 12 February 1981) was a senior Royal Navy officer. He served in World War I and saw action during the Gallipoli Campaign and took part in the internment of the German High Seas Fleet at the end of the War. He also served in World War II initially as Third Sea Lord and Controller of the Navy and then as Second-in-Command and afterwards as Commander of the Home Fleet, leading the force that destroyed the Scharnhorst.
He went on to be First Sea Lord and Chief of the Naval Staff in which role he assisted in establishing NATO and agreed the principle that the Supreme Allied Commander Atlantic (SACLANT) should be an American Admiral, in the face of fierce British opposition.
This statue is in Portsmouth Dockyard

    beautiful capture (the brick-wall background works well with the tones of the sculpture)

  • Thank you very much, it was the contrast with the background brickwork that drew me to the shot
