Unless the question for R H Lowe can be tied in to WW1 then , I'm afraid, it's out of scope and liable to be closed.

Maybe the first mentioned R H Lowe is the person who I would be looking for.  I have in my possession, an item which was presented to thus man by his shipmates ( the date shown was 1912 ).  Apparently , he was fron Grantham, in Lincolnshire......and the only reason I think this is the man whose information I am looking for, is the fact that this “ award” was in the possession of my father in law, who was born and raised in Grantham.

He appears to have been the master of MELTONIAN which was a Leyland ship like MEMPHIAN
