I have every right to be immensely proud of commanding a ship which has never failed to acquit herself well in the performance of any given duty. Nobody realises more than I do that without the unfailing loyalty and devotion of you all this fine record would not be possible.
I wish to thank you all and to ask you to share my pride and satisfaction on receiving this generous recognition from our American Allies.
