HMS Vanguard - Holders of the Royal Victoria Medal
Mr Derek Scrivener, Chairman of the Vanguard Veterans Association, has been asked by the Department that deals with the issue of medals for current details of the holders of the Royal Victoria Medal who are still alive. This medal was presented to selected ratings who were on board HMS Vanguard during the visit of the Royal Family to South Africa in 1947. If you are one of these holders please advise Mr Scrivener as soon as possible at:
70 Beach Road
Tel: 01253 873807
Also, if you know of anyone who is not a member of the Veterans but is also a holder of the medal to likewise advise Mr Scrivener. This enquiry follows a request initiated by Mr Scrivener and may result in some benefit for some ex-members of the crew ofHMS Vanguard.
