THE BURNING OF THE 'VOLTURNO' - PAGE 44
AWARDS ISSUED RE THE VOLTURNO
A SUMMARY BY BERNARD DE NEUMANN

A wonderful summary of all of the medals that were issued re the Volturno was prepared, years ago now, by Bernard de Neumann. Correctly Frederick Bernard De Neumann. Bernard then indicated that the summary should be regarded as a 'work in progress' since it may well be subject to later correction as new data is received. The report which appears below is also available as a pdf file. Here.

You would be interested to know that Bernard used to be a member of the executive committee of the 'Gallantry Medallists' League', and used to run the now long gone 'Gallantry Awards List', a discussion group to help descendents/relatives of gallantry award recipients from around the world find details of the particular award. Bernard has earlier published an extensive report re the 'British' (but not the 'Foreign Service') Sea Gallantry Medals. It is available here.

Alas, I learn that Bernard (1943/2018) passed away on Apl. 18, 2018 at age 74. So very sorry to learn that.


While every word on this total site has been written by the webmaster, he has been helped along the way by a great many people who have provided precious data that they possess - documents, postcards, images, whatever. And without all of that support, the site would surely not be as comprehensive as it is today. Those contributions, large and small, have been gratefully received. But while I have been in contact with all of those contributors, and in may cases almost continuously, it has always been in writing. There are no images on site of any contributor. Until now!

Here is an image of Mathematics Professor Bernard de Neumann, of The City University, London, whose extensive research into matters maritime has provided a significant part of the total site content, including this very page. So I am delighted to be able to share with you an image of Bernard. The painting is by celebrated portrait artist John Wonnacott, CBE, and it won the top prize at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters' annual show in London, England, in April 2005 - and the related Ondaatje prize of £10,000.

I will raise a glass of red wine to you, Bernard, since I see that you have already drained yours!

The image appears here with John Wonnacott's kind consent, and of course Bernard's. Bernard considers himself to be in good company, because it was John Wonnacott who painted a well known picture of the British Royal Family (The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Queen Mother, Prince Charles and his two sons, not forgetting the corgies, of course) to mark the Queen Mother's 100th birthday. A painting which is no less than 12 feet high. Bernard tells me that his painting is 5 ft. by 4 ft. in size.

In fact, I see that this was not the first Wonnacott painting of Bernard. The first can be seen here.

[In the above table it has been necessary to estimate the number of boats launched from each vessel in order to estimate the number of Silver Life-Saving Benevolent Society of New York medals awarded. This leaves some doubt as to whom amongst the officers actually received silver medals, and hence the extensive use of S? where there is lingering doubt. The author has estimated that Asian launched one boat, Carmania one boat, Czar two boats, Devonian two boats, Großer Kurfürst four boats, Kroonland three boats, La Touraine three boats, Minneapolis three boats, Narragansett one boat, Rappahannock one boat, Seydlitz four boats. Making a total of 25 lifeboats estimated to have been involved in the rescue.]
