Identity of officers, pictured above, of H.M.S. Jervis Bay, British armed merchant cruiser, sunk in a gallant battle with a German pocket battleship in the North Atlantic on Nov.5, while defending her convoy of 38 ships, was established last night by Paymaster Lieut. J.G. Sargeant and Sub-Lieutenant Guy Byam-Corstiaens, two of the survivors of the hero ship, who arrived here yesterday to remain with friends in Saint John and Rothesay prior to returning overseas.

When the above picture was previously published in the Telegraph-Journal, on Nov.14, only partial identification was available and for the benefit of those who are treasuring the picture, it is being re-published with complete identification, as follows:
