He is commemorated by name in Rue-Petillon Military Cemetery, Fleurbaix. Very rare "full weight" medal, even rarer Navy award, but that's only the beginning... It's an extremely rare case of Russian Imperial GOLD Bravery medal bestowed to British sailor! And, apparently, a POSTHUMOUS AWARD!!!
Unpublished in all main historical sources instance of Nicholas II GOLD Bravery 2nd Class medal issued to foreigner posthumously!
