OK Pat, pleased to have been of some little help.
Further to last posting - his RN number gives that P makes him a Portsmouth Rating - J that he was Seaman Grade - and as he joined submarines in 1934 he must have served on other boats. If you get his RN Service Record I believe that mambers of this Forum would be pleased to see it.
As to his DSM presentation it may well be that there is a picture of the event in newspapers at the time, or in `War Illustrated'.

Good Hunting,

Sadsac

 Following the success of several French imports to Highbury, Arsene Wenger again turned to his home country in search of another midfield maestro.  Robert Pires was duly signed from Marseille in July 2000 in a £6 million deal.  Robert Pires has adjusted quickly to the English game.  Pires and his love affair with English football comes from the intensity of the game teamed with the passion from the Highbury fans.  On describing the fans' reaction when he scores, he said, <i>It's an unbelievablesensation to be standing on the pitch when the whole crowd erupts.</i>  For a man who played in a European championship final, and who won the World Cup, these words must sound sweet to the Highbury faithful.  Robert Pires received the recognition his talent deserved on winning the Football Writer's Player of the Year Award in the 2001/02 season.
