Hi all I have a DSM which belonged to my late uncle Robert Elder Kennedy (Merchant navy) who was awarded the medal for service during the Normandy landing

I have tried to find out what he did to win the medal without any luck, can anyone advise

Regards

Robert

Hello Robert,

The London Gazette Supplement dated 23rd January 1945 has him listed under - 'For Courage, determination and skill during the landing of Allied Forces on the Coast of Normandy' Able Seaman Robert Elder Kennedy, Merchant Navy (Coleraine, Co Londonderry)

https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/36903/supplement/518/data.pdf

Not much out else I can find at the moment, will keep searching, would be nice to see some photo's if you can.

Regards Simon
