Stock Photo - May 05, 1972 - Naval Officer Clears His Name After A Sixteen-Year Battle: Mr. Christopher Swabey, 45, who was dismissed from the Royal Navy 16 years ago after a court martial convicted him of indecently assaulting a junior officer, could get between -30,000 and -40,000 Navy back-pay as the result of a court decision yesterday which cleared his name. Lord Widgery, Lord Chief Justice, sitting at a Courts Martial Appeals Court, said that the conviction was 'unsafe and unsatisfactory'. In 1956 when the assault was said to have taken place in the back of a taxi in Malta, Mr. Swabey was a 29-year-old lieutenant-commander earning -1,000 a year. A lieutenant-commander is now paid over -3,500.
