Hello greliz I had a quick look for him on the National Archives site, but couldn't find a record for him there. Someone, who has access to the Navy Lists may be able to help. Alternatively, I believe you may have to apply to:
MoD. Ministry of Defence,
CS(RM)2A,
Bourne Avenue,
Hayes,
Middlesex,
UB3 1RF,
England

Good luck with your research.

Jim

I have had a look through Ancestry.co.uk and all I can find is reference to a Lieut E R C Macvicker travelling back to UK from Papua New Guinea in 1925?

The forename Evelyn is easier to find. The search didn't work for his Surname as it has been entered as Mac Vicker

HMS LUPIN (L19) Commander Evelyn MacVicker... My name is David Thomas and I live in Seoul, Korea. I have been researching my family roots in the UK and I have just discovered that a direct descendent of my great great grandfather's brother (Alexander McVicker) a Mr Evelyn Roberts Churchill MacVicker commanded the L19 and served on the Titania. If you have any information about E R MacVicker and his sons John and Peter, please contact me at doohkr@hotmail.com
