LOWESTOFT ST ANDREW CHURCH WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 & Korea - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Martin Edwards 2014

The memorial was within the parish church of St Andrews, Roman Hill, Lowestoft and takes the form of a wooden plaque. There are 95 names listed for World War 1, 28 for World War 2 and one for Korea 1952. The transcription was taken from the photograph and maybe incorrect in places due to the grainy photograph. The memorial board is now housed in the chapel of the Lowestoft War Memorial Museum. The rector has replaced it there with another one that only lists the names of men from the Parish of the Church.

Extract from The London Gazette 20 November 1918

from the Admiralty

With reference to announcements of the award of the Victoria Cross to naval officers and men for services in action with enemy submarines, the following (is the account of the action for which this award was made) —

Action of H.M. Armed Smack Nelson on the 15th August, 1917.

On the 15th August, 1917, the Smack Nelson was engaged in fishing when she was attacked by gunfire from an enemy submarine. The gear was let go and the submarine's fire was returned. The submarine's fourth shot went through the port bow just below the waterline, and the seventh shell struck the skipper, Thomas Crisp, partially disembowelling him, and passed through the deck and out through the side of the ship. In spite of the terrible nature of his wound Skipper Crisp retained consciousness, and his first thought was to send off a message that he was being attacked and giving his position. He continued to command his ship until the ammunition was almost exhausted and the smack was sinking. He refused to be moved into the small boat when the rest of the crew were obliged to abandon the vessel as she sank, his last request being that he might be thrown overboard.

(The posthumous award of the Victoria Cross to Skipper Thomas Crisp, D.S.C., R.N.R., 10055 D.A., was announced in The London Gazette No. 30363, dated the 2nd November, 1917.)

An extract from the London Gazette, No. 30363, dated 2nd November 1917, records the posthumous award of V.C. "For service in action with enemy submarines."

This replica Victoria Cross with its blue Naval ribbon and Distinguished Service Cross were presented in 2004 to the Lowestoft War Memorial Museum by the grand daughter of thomas Crisp, VC, DSC.

The actual medal are kept by Waveney District Council and may be viewed upon request of the Chief Executive.
