B.E.M. - L/G 1-1-1941 - “Chief Yeoman William Douglas Winzer (Pensioner), HMS “Edinburgh Castle”,
was one of the pioneer staff who arrived at Freetown in mid-September. For months he and another Chief Yeoman of Signals worked in the cable office from early morning until late at night with only short times off for meals: coding, typing, distributing and assisting in every way at the Shore Signal Station. During the absence of the Signal Boatswain (which coincided with the arrival of the “Edinburgh Castle”) they managed the rapidly expanding Prince of Wales S.D.O. work very efficiently. For eleven months Winzer and his partner showed incessant keenness and interest in all that they were called upon to do”.
