I PRESENTATION OF MEDALS. I Interesting presentations of medals were made at the South Dock on Sunday morning, by Captain W. L. Down, R.N., Senior Naval Officer at this port, at the inspection of the men attached to the mine sweepers and patrol vessels based on Swansea. Captain Down, in his re- marks, called attention to the great neces- sity for some distinctive decoration being given to those members still living of the heroic British Army which fought in the retreat from Voiis, and saved the Empire and Europe from disaster. He then pre- sented Leading Seaman F. W. Screech, R.N .R., of 18, Blaenant-st., Dufftyn Cym- mer, Port Talbot, with a Distinguished Service Medal for service in action with an enemy submarine on the 1st Novem- ber, 1916, when serving the guns, in his bare feet. Soon after fire was opened a projectile was accidentally dropped on one of his feet, at the same time cutting the ball of his foot against an empty car- tridge case inflicting a severe wound. He continued to serve the gun for some hours in this condition. I A Long Service and Gofcd Conduct Medal was also presented to ex-Stoker John Nash, of 33, Brynmelyn-street, Swansea, who has served in the Royal Naval Reserve for a period of over 20 year! and who was invalided out of the service on the 22nd March, 1917.
