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

 The Vulcan B2 of 50 Squadron heads to Ascension Island from its base at Waddington, where it had been completely overhauled, including the fitting of a refuelling probe, which had to be found from various stores at Catterick, Goosebay in Labrador, Canada, and Wright-Patterson Airfield in Ohio, USA. The Vulcan would take part in the seven planned bombing missions during the Falklands campaign codenamed Operation Black Buck. Each mission would require a solo Vulcan Bomber (plus an airborne reserve Vulcan in case of problems with the first) to fly and bomb the Argentinean airfield at Port Stanley, requiring the support of 12 Handley Page Victor K2 tankers of 55 and 57 squadron on the outward journey and 2 Victors and a Nimrod on the return journey.
