"In connection with this rescue [EMPIRE VOLUNTEER, senket 15. september 1940] the Chief Officer of the "Granli" swam in the rough sea to a float on which there were six survivors who were too exhausted to grasp a line when it was thrown to them. [...] In these circumstances it is submitted for approval that he should be awarded the Gallantry Silver Medal."
