Harry Costain’s medal. Loaned by Garry and Melvyn Reid, grandsons of Harry Costain.

There were seven medals awarded to the crew of the PL11 Wanderer for their part in the rescue of over 150 lives from the RMS Lusitania after a German U-boat, off the Old Head of Kinsale, Southern Ireland, torpedoed the liner.

The medals of two of the crew are currently on display in the Museum
