KIVELL, Able Seaman Frank – When the cutter from HMS Philomel was swamped in heavy seas, Able Seaman ANDERSON, a weak swimmer, got into difficulties. AB Kivell, who had reached safety, immediately turned back to help him. On his way back to the cutter, AB Kivell found Able Seaman CASTEL, also in difficulties with his foot caught in the ropes of the mast. AB Kivell cleared the ropes but was hit on the head by the mast. He went on and eventually brought AB Anderson ashore in an exhausted condition. It was recommended ‘….that his services be recognised in the usual manner by the award of the Life Saving Medal….’
