Admiral Cunningham never really gets the credit due to his use of Air Power. November 11th 1940 he launches a raid on to Taranto Harbour sinking a number of ships. This raid then sets the Japanese of to raid Pearl Harbour bringing America into WW2 and showing the Americans how to use Naval Air power

Apologies for a lttle irreverance here.

Can I nominate my Uncle Fred. Chief Petty officer on HMS Hood, and a great boxer to boot.

There are some truly great men here, I guess in the end it came down to personalities for me. I threw my vote to Grand Admiral Karl Doenitz.

He always appealed to me as being an honourable man.
