Ens. Andrew Joseph Kelley, USNRF, served as CO of submarine chaser SC 337, with service on the Otranto Barrage, stationed at Base 25, Corfu. He and the other chaser COs who served overseas were awarded the Navy Cross (the conditions for award being different initially than they are now).

Thanks to Bob Gill for submitting a scan of the Navy Cross citation for Ens. Kelley (see the image). There is a nice image of the chaser on the SC 337 page
