Torpedo ME, Would You?

Think I'll just give you a taste of my keel.

A UK merchant ship captain who rammed and sank a U-Boat during WWI after it attempted to torpedo him won the Distinguished Service Order medal, which is now being auctioned.

John Bell DSO.

Sad to see things like that go to auction, rather than to a museum.

Considering what the good captain did and what the medal represents, how can anyone think they are worthy of owning his medal?
