C.A.PETHEBRIDGE

Medal Type:
Service No: W/2164
Unit No: HMAS Perth

Corps/Service:
Navy

Country: Australia
Medals Gone Missing has been contacted by a 91 year old gentleman by the name of John PETHEBRIDGE. It was indicated that his brother, Stoker Charles Alexander PETHEBRIDGE was a Prisoner Of War to the Japanese after the loss of the Australian cruiser, HMAS Perth. On the 12 September, 1944 his brother was aboard a Japanese transport vessel which was sunk by an American submarine. As a result of saving multiple lives, his brother Charles was awarded the Albert Medal. His citation reads as follows:- 1944 12 September 1944 Stoker 2nd Class Charles Pethebridge RANR, Australian prisoner of war on board the Japanese SS Rakuyo Maru, carrying 1317 Australian and British POWs from Singapore, it is believed to Formosa. Sailing in convoy, torpedoed and sunk by US submarine Sealion II in the South China Sea on 12 September 1944 (not the 22nd as listed in some sources). Some 1159 POWs were lost, the few survivors being picked up by the Japanese and by the returning US submarines, including 54 by USS Sealion II. Stoker Pethebridge saved the lives of other POWs in the sea at the eventual cost of his own. Posthumously awarded Albert Medal, gazetted 17 July 1945. The KING has been graciously pleased to approve the following Award: Albert Medal in Bronze (Posthumous). Stoker Second Class Charles Alexander PETHEBRIDGE, R.A.N.R., W.2164. For gallantry in saving life at sea at the cost of his own. When the ship on which he was a passenger was torpedoed, Stoker Pethebridge got away with twenty others on a raft. During the ordeal which followed Pethebridge left this raft on several occasions, without a life‑belt, to go to the help of those who through physical weaknesses could not pre­vent themselves from slipping into the sea. The strain of this merciful work upon himself was such that he could not carry on, and during the night which followed the sinking of the ship, he himself disappeared. His citation is listed in the Naval History Homepage. According to a family friend (Elizabeth MOIR) the Albert Medal belonging to Charles Alexander PETHEBRIDGE is missing. Obviously, John PETHEBRIDGE would like to know where this medal is located. If anybody has any knowledge of the whereabouts of the missing Albert Medal, could they please contact the Medals Gone Missing Administrator.
