    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. The date range could therefore be reduced to 1917-18.

    Some of this same footage also features in clip 1876.55.

    Looking for footage of an ancestor who was given a MC on 2 June 1917. In the process of searching came across Private Thomas Hughes of 6th Connaught Rangers (VC) who, according to the internets...

    "While still using crutches, he was decorated by George V in Hyde Park on 2 June 1917."

    So far we think 1917, after 20 April 1917. We now know a bloke on crutches was invested by king in Hyde park on 2 June of that year with a VC. That would work.

    And if there is more of this footage, I'm looking for a tall Australian soldier who, according to family legend, makes the king laugh.
