Robert was awarded King's Commendation for Brave Conduct ; Lloyd's Medal for Bravery at Sea.
The ship was torpedoed and sank. The crew were able to get away in lifeboats and on rafts and, with the exception of one boat containing six men, all were picked up shortly afterwards. This boat, badly damaged, waterlogged and unmanageable, drifted away and missed the rescuing vessel. The six men survived for seven days without food or water, and although land was sighted on the eighth day local currents prevented the boat from being driven inshore. There was no indication that assistance was coming, so Cadets Henderson and Strang volunteered to swim ashore. Both sacrificed their lives in a gallant effort to bring help to their comrades. After leaving the boat, Cadet Henderson was not seen again and although Cadet Strang reached the shore, he died soon afterwards. The same night two others died in the boat, but the survivors were picked up two days later.
