Wikipedia: He joined the Royal Navy in 1941 and was commissioned as an officer one year later. He spent much of his service in the Aegean Sea with the Levant Schooner Flotilla commanded by Adrian C. C. Seligman. The unit included schooners and caïques engaged in irregular operations in support of Allied special forces. Kirk fought on many Greek islands and along a wide section of the Turkish coast. He was engaged in operations at Tekegas Barnu, Didyma, Icaria and Andros. He was awarded a Distinguished Service Cross (DSC) in 1945.
