I have been trying to find more iroanmftion on my grandfather and came across your website regarding compiling a list for your RNZN Communicators Honours List. Maybe my grandfather's BEM may be of interest. Unfortunately the letter from Captain M L Hardie, Naval Officer in Charge only stated for your service in HMNZS Dockyard, Auckland. , however I believe Jack,(as he was known) had something to do with the refuelling/bunkering during the 2nd World War and until his retirement.He was possibly on the Nucula' in the late 1920 s??Details are:Charles Stanley YATES retired from HMNZ Dockyard Auckland in 1953Awarded British Empire Medal (Civil Division), New Year's Honours List 1954 Presented by Her Majesty The Queen at an Investiture in Wellington 12 January, 1954.
