HC Deb 11 March 1915 vol 70 c1555

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware of the successful action of Captain Porter, of the ss. "Graphic," in saving his ship, which was carrying over 100 passengers, from a German submarine off Liverpool on the 30th January last; and whether he will recommend that some suitable recognition of Captain Porter's conduct shall be made?


The report from the "Graphic," with similar reports from other ships which sighted submarines off Liverpool about the same date, is now being investigated. Meanwhile I can give no undertaking.
