BromwichHerbertEngineer GeorgeBROMWICH, GEORGE HERBERT, Engineer, Royal Navy, was born on 27 November 1871, at Frome, Somerset, son of Edmund Cockey, MD, Surgeon. He was educated at Bloxham, Banbury, Oxford, and entered the Royal Navy in July 1887. In 1893 he assisted in the salvage operations at Ferrol, on board HMS Home, and he served on the Australian Station in HMS Karrakatta, 1894-7; at the Royal Naval College at Osborne; in the Goliath, the Good Hope, etc.  In 1900 he served in China, and was present at the Relief of Pekin, and Lean's Navy List says of his services in the campaign: "Promoted DSO for services in China, 1900. Mentioned in Despatches; landed with the Naval Brigade for the defence of Tientsin, and accompanied brigade during Admiral Seymour's attempted relief of Legations; employed in repairing and constructing temporary armoured trucks; did Company Officer's work with Royal Marines after Captain Beyts, RMA, was killed, and was left behind in the Tse-ku Arsenal, with Marines under Major Johnstone, as guard to the party left to destroy Arsenal. Employed mounting 4-inch guns of Algerine in Tientsin and near Pai Yang Arsenal; present at the taking of Native City of Tientsin". He received the Medal and was created a Companion of the Distinguished Service Order [London Gazette, 9 November 1900]: "George Herbert Cockey, Engineer, Royal Navy. In recognition of services during the recent operations in China". (An additional entry says: "Name changed to Bromwich. Letter from the Admiralty dated 15 June 1912.") He was decorated for his services with the Royal Marines during Admiral Seymour's retreat to Tientsin, and for mounting 4-inch guns at Tientsin afterwards. The Insignia, Warrant and Statutes of the DSO were sent to the Admiralty, and the Insignia presented on 31 January 1901, by Rear Admiral Sir J A T Bruce, Second-in-Command on the China Station. Engineer-Commander Cockey changed his name to Bromwich by deed-poll in 1912. Captain Bromwich married, on 19 July 1909, at Portsmouth, Evelyn Mary Newton, daughter of Richard Newton, of Brisbane, Queensland, and their children were Frank Bromwich (born 9 July 1911), and Elizabeth Bromwich. Acting-Captain Bromwich became General Manager, Naval Yard, Garden Island, Sydney, in 1913.
