H.R.H. The Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII for a short while, then the Duke of Windsor) with Henry Blogg at the Central Hall, Westminster on 22nd March 1928, when he presented Blogg with the second bar to his gold medal, for the Georgia rescue, when he said, on presenting the medal, 'I think Coxswain Blogg ought really to break himself of, and I am sure that if there are any ship owners present, and they would like me to bring this to his notice. Apparently he seems to regard it as an indispensible condition of the highest exercise of his seamanship, at any rate in the Gold Medal cases, that the vessel must break in two'.
