Gamp VCThe wartime story of maverick submarine commander Anthony Miers
By: Brian Izzard
Rear Admiral Anthony Miers VC -nicknamed 'Gamp' - was one of the Royal Navy's most controversial submarine commanders of the Second World War.
Hot-tempered and incautiously spoken, he was notorious for his outbursts and those on the receiving end often ended up with a black eye, close-arrest or the sack - for some it was all three.
After his death in 1985, allegations were made that Miers may have been responsible for war crimes in the Aegean in July 1941.
