HMS HAVOCK ran aground off the coast of Tunisia in April 1942. The crew were interned by the Vichy French. I wonder why Royds is buried in Algiers?
The City of Dundee RoH has Royds as of 15 Yewbank Crescent, Broughty Ferry.
The University of Dundee Faculty of Medicine has a memorial award:
ROBERT DAVIES ROYDS MEMORIAL PRIZE (35) - Awarded annually to the student with the highest aggregate of marks in General Pathology (at end of Second Year), Pathology, Medical Microbiology, and Biochemical Medicine (at end of Third Year) and Medical Studies (l and II).
Does this count as an "Individual Memorial"?
