HMS Challenger, Dar Es Salaam, 1917

I am related to Alfred Charles Sykes, who was captain of HMS Challenger at Dar Es Salaam in August 1917. Sykes was made KCMG as a result, and died in 1933 as (I think) a Vice Admiral. The report in the Gazette makes interesting reading.

I'm trying to find out more about him; but apart from the Gazette entries and some pictures of the ship I've drawn a blank.
