Sydney Boyd Boyd-Richardson
Life & Career
Born in Sydney, Australia.
He invented a torpedo deflection plotter around 1912, possibly while serving as torpedo officer in Colossus. It is hard to read, but it appears that it was judged "ingenious & on sound lines."
He was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant-Commander dated 1 January, 1914.
Placed on the Retired List at his own request on 5 February, 1925, Boyd-Richardson was promoted to the rank of Commander on 18 October, 1928.
