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
