Dover Express - Friday 23 October 1942

BRAVERY IN CHANNEL BATTLES. A young British naval officer who gave his life in a deliberate attack on a much larger and more powerful force in the English Channel has been mentioned in despatches. He was Lieut. Nabor Keith Cale, R.N.V.R., senior officer of a flotilla of motor-gunboats. The flotilla was ordered to intercept enemy minelayers which were escorted by a strong force of E-boats. Despite their superior numbers and the approach of daylight, Lieut. Cale led his force to close the enemy at short range. At least two enemy craft were heavily hit and another was set on fire before Lieut. Cale was himself killed by a shell-burst from the German guns.
