Cool Commanding Officer of Le Mars on 11/27/1942

I am looking for the name and rank of the commanding officer of the French L'Adroit class destroyer Le Mars at the time she was scuttled on 11/27/1942. I believe this vessel was commanded by Lieutenant Commander F.R. Lamorte at the outbreak of the war, but do not know if there was a change in command prior to the scuttling.

Hello Le Breton,

I am hoping you could supply the names/ranks of the captains of other French destroyers of this type. I sent you a private message with the details of what I am seeking.

Thanks,

Mark C. Jones
