Guy Charles Cecil Royle Admiral Sir Cecil Burney reports:
"It was entirely owing to his organisation and work that the ship fired so extremely well, quickly and accurately, during the action, especially so after she had been struck by a torpedo and took up a considerable list. He is a very efficient and capable officer."

Paul Whitfield (now prisoner of war in Germany). In command of " Nomad," made a most gallant attack on the enemy battle-cruisers, after having assisted to drive off an enemy flotilla which was endeavouring to attack our battle-cruisers. "Nomad" was disabled by shell fire from the enemy battlecruisers, and subsequently sank. NOMAD
Gerald Fortescue Longhurst Gunnery officer of "Lion." This officer controlled the fire of "Lion" with the greatest coolness, courage and skill, and inflicted immense damage on the enemy. LION
Cecil Burnaby Prickett Gunnery officer of " Princess Royal." Controlled the fire of "Princess Royal" under very difficult conditions with conspicuous success. This is the third time he has controlled the fire of a battle-cruiser in action. A most efficient and resourceful officer. Strongly recommended. PRINCESS ROYAL
Lachlan Donald Ian MacKinnon First Lieutenant and gunnery officer. By his zeal and skill obtained excellent results. Under his control the firing of the ship was accurate and rapid INDOMITABLE
Charles Gwillim Robinson In command of " Engadine." Was prompt in sending up a seaplane to scout. Handled his ship in a skilful and seamanlike manner, and towed " Warrior " for 75 miles, subsequently succeeding in taking off her crew, thus saving their lives. ENGADINE
Geoffrey Corlett. Led his division into action in a most gallant manner and fought a successful action with enemy destroyers, in which they were forced to retire. NARBOROUGH
John Cronyn Tovey For the persistent and determined manner in which he attacked enemy ships as occasion offered, even though his destroyer was disabled by shell fire and unable to proceed at more than 10 knots ONSLOW
Robert Stedman MacFarlan This officer's coolness, ability and resource, especially after he had had a miraculous escape in the torpedo control tower, was most praiseworthy, and the fact that very few communications and lighting failed is entirely due to this officer WARSPITE
Stephen Dowell Tillard. Recommended for good service in action. -
Errol Manners Executive officer of " Comus" and gunnery officer of the Squadron. An excellent officer, already strongly recommended for promotion, who has contributed very materialty to the good gunnery work of the squadron. -
Reginald Stannus Goff This officer reported immediately presence of enemy. Subsequently he exhibited initiative with success, and eventually escorted "Porpoise" back to harbour and berthed her alongside in a most seamanlike manner. -
Clarence Walter Eyre Trelawny This officer, by skilful handling of his ship, managed to ram an enemy cruiser instead of being rammed by her, thereby saving his ship. He showed great coolness and afterwards successfully returned to harbour with his ship in a very damaged condition. -
John Ouchterlony Barren. This officer stood by the " Shark " under a very heavy fire, and although engine-room was wrecked and steering gear broken down and the ship a practical wreck, he successfully, by the aid of " Nonsuch," returned into harbour. -
Gerald Charles Wynter Seeing " Castor " being engaged with two enemy ships, closed them and fired a torpedo at the second enemy ship. This was followed by an explosion. It may be taken for certain that it was " Magic's " torpedo that struck the second ship in the enemy's line. -
Eric Quintin Carter Handled his ship with skill and judgment, as is usual with this officer. -
