Admiral Sir Raymond Derek Lygo, KCB (15 March 1924 - 7 March 2012) was a Royal Navy officer who went on to be Vice Chief of the Naval Staff. Educated at Ilford County High School and Clark's College, Bromley, Lygo joined the Royal Navy at HMS St.Vincent (Fleet Air Arm basic training establishment in Gosport, Hampshire)in 1942 during World War II. He was appointed the commanding officer of the frigate Lowestoft in 1961, the frigate Juno in 1967 and the aircraft carrier Ark Royal in 1969. While in command of the latter in 1971, the Ark Royal collided with a Soviet cruiser that was shadowing her during an exercise in the Mediterranean. Damage to both vessels was slight, though two Soviet crewmen went missing. Lygo was cleared of any responsibility in the subsequent inquiry. He was next appointed Director-General, Naval Manpower and Training from February 1974 to June 1975. He went on to be Vice Chief of the Naval Staff in 1975 and retired in 1978. This copy is from the library of Admiral Sir Brian Thomas Brown KCB CBE (born 31 August 1934) is a senior Royal Navy officer from 1852 to 1991 who went on to be Second Sea Lord and Chief of Naval Personnel.
