The author examines the careers of twenty-three sailors who took part in these actions which resulted in the award of their medals.

long-service regulars, volunteers, recalled veterans of the Great War, Hostilities Only ratings.
They served in nearly every kind of warship and in all the main theatres of the war and their individual acts of gallantry under extreme conditions make for inspiring reading. The author also examines the medals that were awarded for gallantry.
