Lieutenant- Commander Boyle In Submarine E14 Evading Turkish Mines Passing Through The Dardanelles.
After Lieutenant Norman Holbrook, V.C., had crept up the Dardanelles the Turks greatly improved the anti-submarine defences of the narrow channel. The submerged minefields were increased, and in certain parts hulks were sunk to impede the progress of our submarines. Lieut. Commander Boyle and those with him therefore performed a great feat, to which it is impossible to do full justice, in getting through to the Sea of Marmora and returning safely. For the great services of the E14, which lasted three weeks, Lieut. Commander Boyle was awarded the V.C.; Lieutenant E. G. Stanley and Acting-Lieutenant R. W. Lawrence the D.S.O., and each member of the crew the D.S.M.
