The following awards have been made in recognition of services during the operations in the vicinity of the Dardanelles prior to 25th-26th April:

 

The KING (is) pleased to approve of the grant of the Victoria Cross to Lieutenant-Commander (now Commander) Eric Gascoigne Robinson, R.N., for the conspicuous act of bravery specified below.

 

Lieutenant-Commander Robinson on the 26th February advanced alone, under heavy fire, into an enemy's gun position, which might well have been occupied, and destroying a four-inch gun, returned to his party for another charge with which the second gun was destroyed. Lieutenant-Commander Robinson would not allow members of his demolition party to accompany him, as their white uniforms rendered them very conspicuous. Lieutenant-Commander Robinson took part in four attacks on the minefields - always under heavy fire.

____

  

To be Companions of the Distinguished Service Order.

 

Commander William Mellor, R.N. Commander Mellor was in charge of the trawler mine-sweepers, and took part in all the mine-sweeping operations under fire prior to and including the 18th March; he displayed conspicuous gallantry, always being to the fore in a picket boat, in the most exposed positions, encouraging his sweepers and setting a fine example.

 

Lieutenant-Commander (now Commander) John Rickards Middleton, R.N. Lieutenant-Commander Middleton on three occasions entered the minefields under heavy fire, where he organized and successfully carried out attacks - by means of explosive creeps (sic) - on the cables and jack stays.

 

Lieutenant Francis Hugh Sandford, R.N. Lieutenant Sandford was specially recommended for his good work in connection with the attacks on the minefields, which he entered on several occasions, including night of 13th-14th March. He invariably displayed great determination when under fire. Lieutenant Sandford also rendered good service in the demolition of Fort Seddul Bahr.

 

Acting Lieutenant Bernard Thomas Cox, R.N.R. Lieutenant Cox behaved in a most gallant manner when a volunteer in trawler No. 318 during the attack on the minefield on 13th-14th March. Though severely wounded he refused to quit his bridge until out of action. His vessel suffered serious damage and severe casualties.

 

Captain Christopher Powell Metcalfe, R.N. On the 18th March, after H.M.S. "Irresistible" struck a mine, Captain Metcalfe took H.M.S. "Wear" alongside her, and rescued nearly the whole of her crew under a very heavy fire, which caused several casualties - a very fine display of seamanship.

 

 

Lieutenant-Commander (now Commander) the Hon. Patrick George Edward Cavendish Acheson, M.V.O., R.N.

Acting Sub-Lieutenant (now Sub-Lieutenant) Alfred Edward Boscawen Giles, R.N.

Lieutenant-Commander Acheson, with Acting Sub-Lieutenant Alfred E. B. Giles, Chief E. R. A. 2nd Class Robert Snowdon, O.N. 270654, and Stoker 1st Class Thomas Davidson, O. N. K. 14753, went down into the fore magazine and shell room of H.M.S. "Inflexible" (above - Maritime Quest) when the parties working in these places had been driven out by fumes, caused by the explosion of a mine under the ship; they closed valves and water-tight doors, lights being out, the shell room having two feet of water in it, rising quickly, and the magazine flooding slowly. The fumes were beginning to take effect on Acting Sub-Lieutenant Giles, but neither he nor the others left until ordered to do so by Lieutenant-Commander Acheson, who was the last to leave the shell room.

 

Engineer-Commander Harry Lashmore, C.B., R.N.

Engineer-Lieutenant-Commander Arthur Ellis Lester, R.N.

Engineer Lieutenant Rey. (sic) Griffith Parry, R.N.

Surgeon Martyn Henry Langford, R.N.

During the time H.M.S. "Inflexible" was steaming to Tenedos - after having struck a mine - the engine-room being in semi-darkness and great heat, the ship in possible danger of sinking on passage, a high standard of discipline was called for in the Engineer Department, a call which was more than met. Engineer-Commander Harry Lashmore, responsible for the discipline of the engine-room department, was in the starboard engine-room throughout the passage, and set a fine example to his men.

 

Engineer-Lieutenant-Commander Lester was in the port engine-room carrying out the same duties as Engineer-Commander Lashmore did in the starboard engine-room.

 

Engineer-Lieutenant Parry went twice through the thick fumes to the refrigerator flat to see if the doors and valves were closed; he also closed the escape hatch from the submerged flat, fumes and vapour coming up the trunk at the time.

 

Surgeon Langford .brought up the wounded from the fore distributing station in the dark. Fumes permeated the place, rendering five men unconscious. Surgeon Langford, though partially overcome by the fumes, continued his work.

 

Lieutenant Claud Herbert Godwin, R.N. Lieutenant Godwin commanded H.M.S. "Majestic's" picket boat, and was responsible for the successful shot by which the submarine E. 15 was destroyed after running aground.

These officers were both in command of picket boats on night of 13th-14th March. When "Ocean's" boat lay helpless, having been struck in the boiler-room by a shell, "Majestic's" took her in tow, under heavy fire, the conduct of these two young officers being altogether admirable, as was their handling of their boats.

 

Gunner (T) John William Alexander Chubb, R.N. Mr. Chubb, when a volunteer in trawler No. 488, on the night of 13th-14th March, brought his vessel out of action in a sinking condition, his commanding officer and three of the small crew being killed.

 

Gunner (T) William Walter Thorrowgood, R.N. Mr. Thorrowgood was in command of an armed whaler which, on night of 4th-5th March, twice went into the shore between Kum Kale and Yeni Shehr, bringing off two officers and five men, two of them wounded, exposed to rifle fire on both occasions.

 

Midshipman Hugh Dixon, R.N. Midshipman Dixon was in command of "Queen Elizabeth's" picket boat, and was responsible for saving several officers and men from " Irresistible " while under heavy fire, on the 18th March.

 

Acting Sub-Lieutenant (now Sub-Lieutenant) George Tothill Philip, R.N. Acting. Sub-Lieutenant Philip, H.M.S. "Inflexible," was in charge of his picket boat on the 18th March to deal with floating mines. The picket-boat was struck by a heavy shell. Acting Sub-Lieutenant Philip got her alongside "Inflexible," ordered his crew inboard, and, though his knee was injured, got into the engine-room, shut off steam and closed scuttle to stokehold before leaving his boat.

 

Lieutenant Arthur Cyril Brooke-Webb, R.N.R.

Midshipman John Blaxland Woolley, R.N.

These officers took part in the picket-boat attack on the 18th April.

The KING (is) pleased to give orders for the appointment of the following Officers to the Distinguished Service Order in recognition of the services mentioned:

 

Lieutenant-Commander (now Commander) John Beauchamp Waterlow, R.N. For his services in the minesweeping operations in the Dardanelles between the 19th February and 17th March, 1915. Lieutenant-Commander Waterlow took part in these operations on several occasions under a heavy fire, notably on the night of 13th-14th March, when he carried the attack through an area illuminated by six powerful searchlights and covered by the fire of four forts as well as numerous light guns.

 

Lieutenant-Commander Archibald Douglas Cochrane, R.N. For services in a submarine in the Sea of Marmora, where he did great damage to enemy shipping, and after blocking the railway line near Kava Burnu by bombarding it from the sea, shelled a troop train and blew up three ammunition cars attached to it.

 

Captain (temporary Major) Ernest Frederick Powys Sketchley, R.M.L.I., Royal Naval Division. For services in the Gallipoli Peninsula. On the 13th July, during operations south of Achi Baba, a retreat began and rapidly developed, which might have had very serious consequences. Major Sketchley, who was with the supports, assisted by Lance-Corporal J. G. Way, prevented some of these men from retiring further. He then gathered together about 40 of them, reorganised them, and leading them forward, reoccupied some of the trenches. Major Sketchley and Lance-Corporal Way returned twice to gather more men, and, collecting in all about 100, retook further trenches, captured some 40 prisoners and secured the position. Both of them exhibited great courage, presence of mind and powers of personal leadership in a moment of crisis.

 

Surgeon Basil Alfred Playne, R.N., Royal Naval Division. For gallantry and good service during operations near Gaba Tepe from April 28th to May 1st, 1915. On several occasions he rushed across the open (the communication trench being incomplete) into the fire trenches and attended the seriously wounded, regardless of the severity of the enemy's fire; on one occasion he carried a wounded officer on his back from the fire trench to the communication trench under heavy fire. His comspicuous bravery not only inspired the stretcher bearers to perform fine work, but gave confidence and spirit to all ranks. He was again several times brought to notice for gallant deeds when attending wounded on May 3rd and 4th.

 

The KING has further been graciously pleased to give orders for the award of the Distinguished Service Cross to the following Officers:

 

Acting Lieutenant Alan Bennis Fennel Alcock, R.M.L.I., Portsmouth Battalion. For gallantry and good service near Gaba Tepe, between the 28th April and 1st May, 1915. Accompanied by Lieutenant Empson, of the same regiment, with two platoons, numbering in all 60 men, he defended an isolated trench against overwhelming odds. Lieutenant Empson was wounded early in the day on April 30th, and was killed on May 1st, and Lieutenant Alcock was finally compelled to withdraw, after having held this ground for four nights and three days. During this time no food or water could be conveyed to the trench, and at one time ammunition was reduced to about 15 rounds per man.

 

Sub-Lieutenant Charles James Gibbon, R.N.R.

Sub-Lieutenant Charles Henry Hudson, R.N.R.

Acting Sub-Lieutenant Irvine Muirhead Twyman, R.N.R.

For his services in the submarine commanded by Lieutenant-Commander Cochrane in the Sea of Marmora.

The KING (is) pleased to approve of the grant of the Victoria Cross to the undermentioned Officer in recognition of his most conspicuous bravery and devotion to duty:  

 

Sub-Lieutenant Arthur Waldene St. Clair Tisdall, R.N.V.R. (killed in action).  During the landing from the S.S. "River Clyde" at V Beach in the Gallipoli Peninsula on the 25th April, 1915, Sub-Lieutenant Tisdall, hearing wounded men on the. beach calling for assistance, jumped into the water and, pushing a boat in front of him, went to their rescue. He was, however, obliged to obtain help, and took with him on two trips Leading Seaman Malia and on other trips Chief Petty Officer Perring and Leading Seamen Curtiss and Parkinson. In all Sub-Lieutenant Tisdall made four or five trips between the ship and the shore, and was thus responsible for rescuing several wounded men under heavy and accurate fire. Owing to the fact that Sub-Lieutenant Tisdall and the platoon under his orders were on detached service at the time, and that this Officer was killed in action on the 6th May, it has only now been possible to obtain complete information as to the individuals who took part in this gallant act. Of these, Leading Seaman Fred Curtiss, O.N. Dev. 1899. has been missing since the 4th June, 1915.

To be Additional Members of the Third Class, or Companions, of the said Most Distinguished Order:

Captain Lionel de Lautour Wells, R.N.

Commander (Acting Captain) Henry Valentine Simpson, R.N.

____

 

The KING (is) pleased to give orders for the appointment of the undermentioned Officers to be Companions of the Distinguished Service Order in recognition of their services whilst employed on Transport duties at the Dardanelles:

 

Capt. Robert Cathcart Kemble Lambert, R.N., H.M.S. "Europa" As Beachmaster on "V" Beach on 25th April, 1915, and subsequent days, by his coolness under fire, zeal, and energy, showed a magnificent example to his subordinates in a most difficult and dangerous position. Has since proved a most able assistant to the Principal Naval Transport Officer, Mudros.

 

 

 

Cdr. Henry George Muir, R.D., R.N.R., H.M.S. "Sarnia" (above - Pat Gariepy). "Sarnia" has carried out the arduous duties of a ferry steamer, plying between Mudros and the peninsula, carrying troops and military stores, entailing constant moving and going alongside other ships. Commander Muir has handled his ship well, and it is owing to his zeal and attention to duty that the work has been satisfactorily performed under trying conditions.

 

Lieut.-Cdr. Frank Eyers, R.N.R., M.F.A., "Carrigan Head." Has performed meritorious service in the Eastern Mediterranean during the past nineteen months, including the saving of his unarmed ship when attacked by an enemy submarine.

Lieut. Matthew Boggan, R.N.R., Troop Carrier "Ermine." Has carried out the arduous duties of ferry service between Mudros and the peninsula, carrying troops and military stores, entailing constant moving and going alongside other ships, in a zealous and most satisfactory manner, the service being frequently carried out under fire.

 

Lieut. Edward Davey, R.N.R., Cargo Carrier "Wheatberry." Whilst unloading alongside under the lee of the outer hulk, Helles beach, during a gale on 17th November, 1915, the wind rose so suddenly that it was not considered safe for the ship to leave, and he was ordered to secure with extra hawsers. At the height of the gale one of the sternfasts parted, and it became evident that the ship would break adrift. Lieutenant Davey, with great judgment, eased off his lines, turned his ship in a very confined space, and successfully got her to sea.

 

Lieut. Archibald Lamont, R.N.R., Cargo Carrier "Asteria." In command of "Asteria," has done excellent work in carrying supplies to Cape Helles and other beaches. Always anxious to load quickly and proceed as often as possible, regardless of weather.

Act. Lieut. Percival John Pycraft, R.N.R., H.M.S. "Europa." Whilst in command of a motor lighter this officer handled his craft in a most seamanlike manner, and on many occasions unloaded troops in bad weather, under the enemy's fire, at Anzac, showing skill and ability.

 

Sub-Lieut. John Stewart, R.N.R., H.M. Tug "Flying Witch." When H.M. Transport "East Point," containing hay and forage, caught fire at Suvla, due to shell fire, this officer volunteered and offered his help; he worked for three hours under very trying conditions, and thereby greatly assisted in getting the fire under.

 

Mid. George Tombeur Creft, R.N.R., H.M.S. "Europa." In command of a motor lighter. Has done excellent work off the Gallipoli Peninsula, landing troops and stores, often under shell fire, and especially during the evacuation of Cape Helles, when he handled his craft extremely well.

 

Charles B. Andersson, Captain of H.M.T. "Roman Prince." Has carried out many trips between Mudros and. the peninsula with valuable cargoes, the ship being generally used for conveyance of special material, such as guns, &c. Owing to this officer's zeal and energy the work has been carried out with invariable success. His ship has frequently been under fire, and he is a thorough seaman and handles his ship admirably.

 

David P. McDonald, Captain of H.M.T. "Queen Louise." Has displayed great energy, determination and keenness in the working of his ship and for the special purposes for which she has been used, viz., taking guns and valuable cargo to the peninsula. His ship has been frequently under fire.

 

Frederick Uren, Captain of H.M.T. "Trewellard." Has been frequently under fire off the peninsula. Has displayed much energy, determination and good seamanship.

 

 

 

Lawrence V. James, Captain of H.M.T. "Huntsgreen" (above - Photo Ships). Took the place of H.M.S. "Hannibal " for the evacuation of Helles, and showed courageous and skilful handling of his ship.

 

Robert Gumming, Captain of H.M.T. "Ajax." Performed good work off the peninsula, where his ship was twice damaged by shell fire. Was attacked by enemy submarine on voyage from Alexandria to Mudros on 10th October, 1915, and brought his ship safely into port.

 

Horace J. Young, Captain of H.M.T. "East Point." Performed good work off the peninsula, where his ship was set on fire by enemy shell fire, whilst unloading supplies.

 

Alfred R. Murley, Chief Officer of H.M.T. "Cardiganshire." Responded to the call for volunteers to man S.S. "Jessie" on 22nd April, 1915, and for a few weeks during the first landing operations did invaluable work in keeping up an unfailing supply of ammunition to the beach.

 

Harold G. E. Wightman, Officer Commanding cable ship "Levant." Rendered good services in connection with the laying of the cable from Imbros to Suvla on the night of the Suvla landing, and in laying and repairing cables off the peninsula frequently under heavy fire.

In recognition of his most conspicuous bravery and devotion to duty in the course of the Dardanelles operations. On the night of 30th April/1st May, 1915, a message asking for ammunition, water and medical stores was received from an isolated fire trench at Gaba Tepe. A party of Non-commissioned Officers and men were detailed to carry water and ammunition, and, in response to a call for a volunteer from among the stretcher bearers, Parker at once came forward; he had during the previous three days displayed conspicuous bravery and energy under fire whilst in charge of the Battalion stretcher bearers. Several men had already been killed in a previous attempt to bring assistance to the men holding the fire trench. To reach this trench it was necessary to traverse an area at least four hundred yards wide, which was completely exposed and swept by rifle fire. It was already daylight when the party emerged from shelter and at once one of the men was wounded: Parker organised a stretcher party and then going on alone succeeded in reaching the fire trench, all the water and ammunition carriers being either killed or wounded. After his arrival he rendered assistance to the wounded in the trench, displaying extreme courage and remaining cool and collected in very trying circumstances. The trench had finally to be evacuated and Parker helped to remove and attend the wounded, although he himself was seriously wounded during, this operation.
