    Some of this same footage also features in clip 1876.48. That names the recipients of the medals as Sir Edward Evans, the Commander of HMS Broke, and sailors from that same ship.

    Reducing the clip's current date range, the sailors were receiving medals for their actions during the Battle of Dover Strait on 20 April 1917, when they engaged six German destroyers. The date range could therefore be reduced to 1917-18.
