Name Text Ship
Lieutenant-Commander Laurence Reynolds Palmer, R.N. For his gallantry, when his destroyer was disabled, in proceeding to the assistance of ONSLOW and taking her in tow under heavy shell fire. He succeeded in towing her in a heavy sea until relieved by tugs when in sight of land. DEFENDER
Lieutenant Jack Ernest Albert Mocatta, R.N. Supported Commander Bingham, of NESTOR, in his gallant action against destroyers, battle-cruisers, and battleships, in the most courageous and effective manner. NICATOR
Lieutenant - Commander Roger Vincent Alison, R.N. For promptness and gallantry in taking advantage of the opportunity of attacking the enemy's vessels with the torpedo on two occasions, as described in my original despatch. MORESBY
Lieutenant-Commander Montague George Bentinck Legge, R.N. Having defeated the enemy destroyers, gallantly pressed home attack with torpedoes on the enemy battle-cruisers. NERISSA
Lieutenant-Commander Cuthbert Patrick Blake, R.N. Having defeated the enemy destroyers, gallantly pressed home attack with torpedoes on the enemy battle-cruisers. TERMAGANT
Commander the Hon. Edward Barry Stewart Bingham, R.N. (prisoner of war). Recommended for Victoria Cross.
For the extremely gallant way in which he led his division in their attack, first on enemy destroyers and then on their battlecruisers. He finally sighted the enemy battle-fleet, and, followed by the one remaining destroyer of his division (NICATOR), with dauntless courage he closed to within 3,000 yards of the enemy in order to attain a favourable position for firing the torpedoes. While making this attack, NESTOR and NICATOR were under concentrated fire of the secondary batteries of the High Sea Fleet. NESTOR Nestor was subsequently sunk.
Major Francis John William Harvey, R.M.L.I. Recommended for posthumous Victoria Cross
Whilst mortally wounded and almost the only survivor after the explosion of an enemy shell in "Q" gunhouse, with great presence of mind and devotion to duty ordered the magazine to be flooded, thereby saving the ship. He died shortly afterwards.
- Remarks of Captain Percy M. R. Royds -
Lieutenant-Commander Cecil Charles Brittain Vacher, R.N. For controlling the fire from the ship in the coolest manner from a very exposed position under extremely heavy fire. CANTERBURY
Lieutenant Cuthbert Coppinger, R.N. For navigating the ship in the coolest manner from a very exposed position under extremely heavy fire. CANTERBURY
- Remarks of Captain Walter L. Allen. -
Lieutenant-Commander Gordon Alston Coles, R.N. The commander of his division speaks highly of the way he conned his ship. AMBUSCADE fired three torpedoes, and the rapid reloading under fire reflects great credit on all concerned, and proves the ship is in a high state of efficiency. AMBUSCADE
Commander Loftus William Jones, R.N. Recommended for posthumous honour.
For fighting his ship until she sank after having been seriously wounded.
Acting Sub-Lieutenant Newton James Wallop William-Powlett, R.N. (now SubLieutenant). Very strongly recommended. This officer showed wonderful coolness under most trying circumstances, and his pluck and cheerfulness after the ship sank were certainly the means of saving the lives of several who would otherwise have given in and succumbed. I cannot speak too highly of this young officer's conduct throughout. TIPPERARY
Surgeon Probationer Douglas George Patrick Bell, R.N.V.R. Devoted great attention to the wounded, and amputated a limb single-handed in the dark. SPITFIRE
Chief Artificer Engineer Alexander Noble, R.N. Went twice into the after stokehold, but was driven out by steam. Succeeded at the third attempt and shut off auxiliary feed pump and auxiliary stop valve. PORPOISE

Staff Surgeon James McAlister Holmes, M.B., R.N For the very efficient manner in which the wounded were attended to whilst under fire and subsequently. CASTOR
Lieutenant-Commander Henry Ruthven Moore, R.N. For the assistance he gave the Commodore (F), both during the day and night action, and the manner in which he carried out his duties. CASTOR
Commander Harold Ernest Sulivan, R.N. As second in command of the flotilla he manoeuvred his half very ably during the daytime, and at night, when CASTOR could make no signals owing to damage by gunfire, he very ably turned his half-flotilla and kept clear of the first half-flotilla manoeuvring. KEMPENFELT
- Remarks of Captain (D) Anselan J. B. Stirling. -
Commander John Pelham Champion, R.N. Handled his division with great ability whilst in action, and led his division to attack an enemy battle squadron with great gallantry. MAENAD
Lieutenant John Hinton Carrow, R.N. Was on the bridge the whole time during the action and carried out the duties of navigating officer in a most exemplary manner, and was of the greatest assistance to me in keeping me informed of the range and bearing of the enemy, especially during the night attack. FAULKNOR
Engineer Lieutenant-Commander John Kirk Corsar, R.N. Kept his department in good order and MARVEL
