attended Britannia in January 1900.
Tovey's first command was the oil-fired destroyer Jackal in 1915.
He went on to earn a reputation for immense courage in command of the destroyer Onslow at Jutland. Earning the DSO in 1919 and special promotion to commander for persistence and determination in attacking enemy ships marked him out clearly as a rising star, even at the young age of thirty-one.
A year at the Royal Naval Staff College, Greenwich and two years in the operations division in the Admiralty (1920-22) confirmed that impression, as did promotion to Captain in 1923. Shore appointments and appointments as Captain (Destroyers) then flowed. The intertwining of his and Cunningham's career was again evident. When Tovey's destroyers were based at Port Edgar, Cunningham was captain in charge of the base. Between them they developed a new training scheme which was a significant improvement on the old one, and which increased the amount of time spent at sea.
Tovey then spent a year at the Imperial Defence College, and two years as naval assistant to the Second Sea Lord at the Admiralty, before being given command of the battleship Rodney in 1932, then went onto command at the Royal Navy barracks at Chatham in 1935. Being promoted to rear-Admiral in the same year. He became Rear Admiral (Destroyers) in the Mediterranean in March 1938 and Vice Admiral in May 1939. He thus served under Cunningham when the latter became CiC of the Mediterranean and worked closely with him from the outset. Cunningham made Tovey commander of all Allied light forces in the Mediterranean and second-in-command to himself.
Tovey's destroyers were superbly handled in the action at Calabria on 9th July 1940, when a single long-range hit by Warspite on the Italian flagship sent the Italian fleet scurrying for home. Ten days later, Tovey's forces sank the Italian cruiser Bartolomeo Colleoni.
Later in 1940, Tovey was given the acting rank of Admiral and transferred to relieve Charles Forbes as Commander-in-Chief of the Home Fleet. After the Bismarck was sunk, an old argument with Churchill resurfaced when Tovey threatened to resign as Churchill wanted the Captain of the Prince of Wales court-martialled for turning away for the enemy. This threat meant no more was heard of the matter.
Tovey like most of the Navies' leaders fought vermently against Churchills' sometimes insane and strategically suicidal schemes which earned them criticism form the Prime Minister. He followed this with the Sinking of the Bismarck. His conduct of this operation was flawed but in fairness, the Admiral suffered various problems including lack of at-sea refuelling capability, armour and gunnery problems, and lack of long-range coastal Aircraft for reconnaissance.
Had it not been for the Arrival of Somerville's Force H with the Sheffield and Ark Royal, Tovey would probably never have sunk the Bismarck, the Ark Royal's Aircraft stopped her and allowed Tovey's King George V and Rodney to reduce her to scrap.
This victorious episode in Tovey's career was followed by the missed opportunity of the Channel dash and the Tirpitzs' foray against PQ17. The first was missed because Tovey would not risk his ships in the Channel where the Luftwaffe might pounce, and the second for bad weather and confusion over Tirpitzs' position.
Cunningham was recalled from the Mediterranean and an attempt was made to get rid of Tovey and appoint Cunningham in his place. Cunningham said he would take over from Tovey if and when Tovey dropped dead on his bridge. Cunningham was sent to Washington instead and Tovey was sent to command the Nore.
