    Excerpt from the Poverty Bay Herald 30 May 1918. "NAVAL HEROES

    AUCKLAND OFFICER’S EXPLOIT. Lieutenant J.W.L. Stubbs, R.N.V.R. of Auckland, was mentioned in dispatches last month for his part in the sinking of a submarine in the Channel. The story is told in the Yachting Monthly by Lt. Commander Harry Vandervell, R.N.V.R.

    A group of very fast submarine chasers were conducting a convoy 30 miles from land. Lieut. Stubbs’ boat was a mile and a-half from the leader of the convoy, when suddenly, emerging from a thick bank of mist, a submarine was seen 70 yards ahead in the act of submerging slowly. Without hesitation the officer commanding dashed for the spot at full speed, and ran right across it at a speed of 18 knots, striking it with such force that both propellers crashed and the engine stopped, while all hands were flung along the deck. Lieut. Stubbs fired a parting shot at the submarine as she disappeared. It was at once evident that the chaser was likely to sink, and a skiff was lowered to take the crew off, but a trawler arrived in response to the S.O.S., and with two other chasers took her in tow. Four and a half hours of careful navigation brought the patrol boats into harbor 30 miles away. The Lords of the Admiralty considered the submarine to be either badly damaged or destroyed, since the convoy was not subsequently attacked, and they approved an award of £1000 to those aboard the motor launch. The officer commanding, also belonging to the R.N.V.R. was awarded the D.S.O., and Lieut. Stubbs was mentioned in the Gazette."

    RNVR officers were not allocated service numbers.
