These show Ernest Holcombe was born was born in Slinden, Sussex on 6 March 1885, on joining the R.N. on 27 December 1902 as a Boy2 class his trade is given as a “Carter / Land Worker”. He entered the Submarine Service on 11 July 1909 serving in this branch until 17 October 1918. They make particular note of his being ‘Paid Prize Bounty for the Destruction of Enemy Shipping in the Heligoland Bight Action 28 August 1914’. British submarine patrols in the Heligoland Bight region in August 1914 had noticed that German torpedo boats patrolled this area supported by light cruisers in two shifts of a day and night group. Roger Keyes Commodore (S), commander of British submarines, formulated a plan to raid these patrols using the Harwich Force of light cruisers and destroyers under Reginald Tyrwhitt Commodore (T). The plan was for the Harwich force to drive the German patrol away from the German coast at dawn with British submarine split into two groups, one to intercept any German reinforcements and the other to act as a decoy to keep the German torpedo boats offshore. Further offshore would be some heavier units to support the Harwich Force against any German reinforcements and ideally the Grand Fleet would be in distant support. Keyes approached the Admiralty for approval of the plan on August 23 1914 but the War Staff were too busy to consider the plan. Keyes, rather than giving up, went direct to the First Lord of the Admiralty, Winston Churchill. Churchill was impressed by the idea and called a meeting the following day with Tyrwhitt (who had to be recalled form sea), Price Louis of Battenburg (the 1st Sea Lord), Vice Admiral Sturdee (Chief off the Admiralty War Staff) and Vice Admiral Sir Fredrick Hamilton (2nd Sea Lord). Sturdee decided that is was not necessary to send the Grand Fleet in support and so the plan was changed to reduce the support to Cruisers Force C of five old armoured cruisers and Cruiser Force K with the Battlecruisers Invincible and New Zealand. He also changed the direction of the attack. Eight British submarines were involved with an inner line of E4, E5 and E9 north and south of Heligoland to attack any reinforcing or retreating German ships. An outer line of E6, E7 and E8 was formed 40 miles further out and were intended to try and lure the German destroyers further out to sea. Finally D2 and D8 were stationed off Ems to attack any reinforcements coming from that direction. The sweep was to take place on the 28 August with Keyes and Tyrwhitt putting to sea on the 26 and 27 August respectively. Unfortunately it was not until the 26 August that the Admiralty informed Admiral John Jellicoe (C-in-C Grand Fleet) that a major operation was planned in the North Sea, and even when they did inform him the information they sent was limited and vague. Jellicoe was concerned by the lack of support for an operation so close to German bases and so requested that he bring the Grand Fleet out in support. Sturdee told Jellicoe that this was not necessary but if he wanted he could send additional battlecruisers. Jellicoe took this opportunity and he informed the Admiralty that he would be sending Beatty with the First Battlecruiser Squadron and Commodore Goodenough with the First Light Cruiser Squadron to reinforce the covering force. Keyes and Tyrwhitt had already sailed and the Admiralty failed to inform them of the additional British units involved in the operation. This lack of communication from the Admiralty nearly led to disaster when before dawn the Harwich force encountered the First Light Cruiser Squadron. Fortunately it was established the cruisers were friendly. Tyrwhitt was then informed of the reinforcements but it was too late to inform the British submarine of the new units. Facing the British raid the German Navy had two patrol lines. The outer line, 25 miles west of Heligoland, consisted of nine modern destroyers of the I torpedo Boat Flotilla. Twelve miles nearer Heligoland were vessels of the III Minesweeping Division. Supporting these lines were the light cruisers SMS Hela, Ariadne, Frauenlob and Stettin. SMS Mainz was waiting off the Ems to the south but the other seven light cruisers allocated to the patrols were all in either Brunsbuttel or Wilhelmshaven. Unfortunately for the German light forces any heavier ships that might be used to reinforce the patrols were limited in the times they could leave the Jade by tides. Demobilised on 28 February 1919 into the Royal Fleet Reserve. He re-enlisted into the R.N. on 15 February1921 and was pensioned on 24 February 1927 but served through until 1938. He was not fit for further mobilisation in 1939. Also sold with copied information covering submarines and ships. Condition: Good Fine. with contact marks
