HC Deb 28 November 1951 vol 494 c1509
43. Wing Commander N. J. Hulbert

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if, in consequence of the Admiralty decision not to proceed with the attempted salvage of H.M. Submarine "Affray," he will arrange for a memorial service to be held over the spot where she is located.

The Parliamentary and Financial Secretary to the Admiralty (Commander Allan Noble)

Memorial services have already been held, and it is not considered desirable to hold any further service at this late stage. On 17th April, 1952, the first anniversary of the loss, Flag Officer Submarines, in one of H.M. Ships, will visit the place where H.M. Submarine "Affray" lies, taking a wreath from the Submarine Service.

61. Dr. Bennett

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he will call for recommendations for awards to the divers and salvage staff engaged in the recent operations on the wreck of H.M. Submarine "Affray."

Commander Noble

The Commander-in-Chief, Portsmouth, has made a report to the Admiralty on this matter.
