Many candidates have been making enquiries as to the non-arrival of the awards.  I know how anxious they must be to receive them, but the following extract from a letter sent by the Royal Life-Saving Society will explain why they have not been received up to date:-

"... I regret that you have had anxious enquiries ... It is with great regret that we have been unable to send your medals with the same speed as in pre-war times, due to our medal makers having suffered from enemy action, their delivery of goods having been considerably delayed.  In addition to this, although we have a licence from the Government, we are experiencing difficulty in obtaining metal to complete the supplies."
