This followed a dinner in their honour, and later on Blogg went to London to receive his gold medal from the Prince of Wales. 368 pounds was raised by subscription, a gold watch was also presented to Blogg and silver watches to the crew. A cheque for 289 pounds 8 shillings and 11 pence, the remainder of the money and 50 pounds from the owners of the Georgia were all handed to Blogg on that evening for distribution.
