London Gazette DSM Award Abbreviation

In researching a member of my family tree, I discovered he had been awarded the DSM about a year before his death (by mine explosion, along with all hands aboard the trawler BORNEO, 18 June 1917)

The London Gazette announced the award as usual, as shown below:

SUPPLEMENT TO THE LONDON GAZETTE, 14 JULY, 1916

Deckhand Edgar Wileman, R.N.R., O.N.D.A. 2002.

I understand the 'R.N.R.' to mean Royal Naval Reserve', but I am unable to discover the meaning of 'O.N.D.A 2002'.

I would be very grateful for any help in this matter.

With many thanks...

..... Steven.
