Capt. Colin Maud RN Beach Master DSO & Bar, DSC & Bar (21 January 1903 – 1980). Exceptionally bold and tenacious looking like a latter-day buccaneer he was described as “one of the most popular officers in the British Navy“.
Portrayed by Kenneth More (1914–1982) in the 1962 film The Longest Day. Maud acted as a technical adviser on the film and provided More with the same blackthorn shillelagh he had carried on D-Day.
