    With Their Jolly Roger bearing insignia denoting various “kills” are Lieut. J. G. Y. Roxborough, D.S.O., D.S.C., R.N. Commanding Officer, and his crew of H.M. Submarine United, just back to a home port after service in the Mediterranean 1943. During which the United sank 16,000 tons of enemy shipping. Bars on her flag denote ships sunk, daggers are for “Special Operations” and an egg timer recalls an occasion when the United had to be submerged for 36 hours, whilst being hunted by enemy destroyers.
