Ernest Rice K.C.B.
Tilmanstone (Saint Andrew) Churchyard
He drove with his parents in a carriage and pair from their home at Dane Court to Deal, a distance of some five miles: there he embarked in one of the Deal luggers (now, unhappily, extinct), and was taken out to H.M.S. Odin, lying in the Downs, on her way to the Baltic. He had no previous naval training, but within a few weeks of joining his ship he found himself in a sanguinary boat action, in which his life was in all probability saved by his being unable to extricate himself from beneath the dead body of a marine who had fallen upon him; and in this affair of Gamla Carleby he brought the boats out of action as the only surviving officer.
