With huge thanks and credit to the forum members who helped my research, I'm delighted to report publication of my book about Commander Derek 'Jake' Wright DSC** RNVR. Titled 'Torpedoes, Tea, and Medals' (ISBN 978-1636241401) it has been printed and distributed by Casemate UK, and is available from all good bookshops (including online).
The book includes a whole chapter about the 12th MTB Flotilla, and their secret antics between Dartmouth and the Solent. It also details all of the 12 enemy engagements in which 'Jake' Wright fought the Germans, plus his 6 offensive minelays.
100% of the royalties from the book have been assigned to the Coastal Forces Heritage Trust, so every book purchase is also a charity donation to that wonderful organisation.
For anyone interested in hearing the story, I was interviewed on the Youtube Channel WW2TV ... the tale is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qP4NefDj8Ks
Please spread the word ... and maximise sales and thus royalty payments to CFHT.
