Lieutenant-Commander Gerald Fortescue Longhurst, R.N. (now Commander). Gunnery Officer of my Flagship. Controlled the fire of "Lion" with greatest coolness, courage and skill, and inflicted immense damage on the enemy. This is the third time he has controlled the fire of " Lion " in action. -
Fleet Surgeon Alexander Maclean, M.B., R.N. Performed his exhausting duties with the greatest zeal and courage. The medical staff was seriously depleted by casualties; the wounded and dying had to be dressed under very difficult conditions on the mess deck, which was flooded with a foot of water from damaged fire mains. Fleet Surgeon Maclean has suffered considerably since the action from his devotion to duty. -
Lieutenant (E.) Stewart Magee Walker, R.N. The command of the mess deck devolved on Lieutenant Walker in the absence on duty of the commander of the ship.
