Vice-Admiral Sir Arthur Lumley St George Lyster, KCB, CVO, CBE, DSO (27 April 1888, Warwickshire - 4 August 1957[1]) was a Royal Navy officer during the Second World War. He was the Fifth Sea Lord that was historically one of the Naval Lords and members of the Board of Admiralty that controlled the Royal Navy. The post has since been abolished during numerous reorganisations. He is notable for drawing up the attack plan for the Battle of Taranto, beginning in 1935 (at the instruction of Admiral Sir Dudley Pound),.[2] and commanding HMS Illustrious. He commanded air operations during Operation Pedestal, for which he was appointed CBE. He was also Flag Officer Carrier Training.
