In the 1971 Queen’s Birthday Honours, he was appointed Companion of the Order of the Bath (CB).


After the war Gueritz became second-in-command of HMS Saumarez, and it was due to the damage control procedures that he put in place that the ship was not lost during the Corfu Channel Incident in 1946. He was promoted to lieutenant commander on 16 April 1949, and to commander on 31 December 1953. He served on the staff of General Sir Hugh Stockwell during the Suez Crisis of 1956. Within the seaman specialism, he was promoted to captain on 30 June 1959 on appointment as Deputy Director of the Royal Naval Staff College.

His immediate superior, Commander Rowley Nichols was badly wounded, and the army liaison officer Lieutenant-Colonel D V H Board was killed almost immediately. This left Gueritz alone with the task of marshalling all the troops coming ashore, organising the landing craft and maintaining contact with the naval forces offshore. He was wearing a blue-painted helmet and a red scarf, and his sole weapon was a blackthorn walking stick.


On 25 August 1942, Gueritz was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross “for bravery and enterprise while serving in H.M. Ships, Transports and Royal Fleet Auxiliaries in the successful operations which led to the surrender of the important base of Diego Suarez”. On 29 August 1944, he was awarded a Bar to his Distinguished Service Cross “for gallantry, skill, determination and undaunted devotion to duty during the initial landings of Allied Forces on the coast of Normandy”.
