    Robert Kapanjie says:

    In a related incident, during the battle for Crete, Lord Mountbatten's ship was sunk, fortunately he was rescued. From birth he was Louis Battenberg son of the First Sea Lord in 1912. His father, being of German lineage was dismissed in 1914. This occurred with the approval, although with private regrets of Winston Churchill. The animus of being German extended to the King, George the fifth who changed his family name from Saxe- Gotha- Coberg.to Windsor. When the Kaiser heard of this he is reputed to have said now we have Merry Wives of Saxe Goth Gotha.For the same reason of being un-German, Battenberg changed the family name to Mountbatten.
    Lord Mountbatten was the last Viceroy of India, He was First Sea Lord in the 1950's duplicating his father's position 40 years earlier. and he was assassinated by the I R A off the coast of Ireland in 1979
