My Uncle, Chief Engineer John Noel Le Neve Arnold, was awarded a Gold Watch and a Lloyd's Medal and Certificate for extinguishing a fire that broke out aboard the SS Esturia (1910) on October 5, 1925, near Marseilles, while cleaning the tanks after having just unloaded a cargo of benzine .
He had been aboard since WWI, when the ship was chartered for service by the Royal Australian Navy as an oiler and supply vessel (operating in Australian and Malayan waters).
I have prepared a PDF document that enrichens the history of this vessel but I know no way of making it directly available.
I would be happy to send it to any one who requests.
