Motion text

That this House, mindful of Sir Winston Churchill's words 'of all the branches of men in the forces, there are none which shows more devotion and faces grimmer perils than the submariner' is grateful to those who serve in the Royal Navy Submarine Service during the Cold war, spending months at sea on covert operations, without home contact, enduring great dangers and exhibiting stoic fortitude and courage, quietly guarding this nation, helping to maintain peace at troubled times; is grateful to the International Submarines Association of Great Britain and wishes it well in hosting an international convention in Chatham this year with participants from 17 nations, most of which have formally recognised the Cold War service of their submariners with a medal; and calls on the Government to award a campaign medal to British Submariners to recognise the service given and the sacrifices they made.
