Struggling with this one John, any chance of another clue? Remember you're dealing with a dimwit here

He was Liberal, and it could be said he was very fast where he was playing his basketball ( ooh I’m on form this morning)

I did a WIT search and he didn't come up, but that's a good clue you've given 👍

Hello

This would be Commander ‘Kit’ Wykeham-Musgrave.  Acclaimed for having survived the most shipwrecks, after being torpedoed on three separate ships in the same day by U-9  on September 22, 1914.

The thread has been going for years Jim but seems to be experiencing a bit of a lull just recently. Perhaps you would like to offer up a candidate and drip feed clues as we go along?
