Name: FASSON, FRANCIS ANTHONY BLAIR
Initials: FAB
Nationality: United Kingdom
Rank: Lieutenant
Regiment/Service: Royal Navy, HMS Petard
Awards: GC
Date of Death: 30/10/1942
Additional Information: Son of Capt. Francis Hamilton Fasson, Scottish Horse, and Lilias Clara Bruce Fasson, of Lanton, Roxburghshire.
Panel Reference: Panel 62, Column 1
Memorial: Portsmouth Naval Memorial

The citation in the London Gazette of 14th September, 1943, reads

"Awarded the George Cross for most conspicuous gallantry in carrying out hazardous work in a very brave manner."

Lt. Fasson together with Able Seaman Colin Grazier, R.N., both boarded a sinking submarine following action by H.M.S. Petard. The crew of the submarine surrendered and survivors were taken off. In total darkness Fasson and Grazier entered the sinking submarine to capture instruments and documentation fully aware of the dangers. They continued to hand over documents and equipment until suddenly the vessel sank like a stone without warning and took both to their deaths . Both were posthumously awarded the George Cross.
