    Justification

    Award to crew member of T/S ALASKA for contribution "to rescuing survivors of a torpedoed ship and saving their own ship after being torpedoed". T/S ALASKA was "torpedoed and damaged by U-510 in the North Atlantic 30. October 1942".

    Going through new source material in order to document the war sailors and their history is an ongoing and extensive effort, and there exist no complete register over decorations awarded. Infomation about medals will therefore be registered gradually and be based on different source materials. The war sailors were awarded medals both during and after the war.
