    William Pendle, George Medal for devotion to duty when the Hospital for Sick Children, Gt. Ormond Street. London, was bombed. The explosion shattered the furnaces and burst gas and water mains. Pendle, who was the stoker, calmly proceeded to draw his fires, shut off steam, and made everything as safe as possible, although bombs were falling and water was swirling up to his waist.
