RM & RN medal rolls for WW1 have the abbreviation St. for Star. The abbreviation S is also used in the 'disposed of' column to denote that the medals were sent to the recipient direct, as opposed to any vessel or unit.

In your case I have a feeling that 'S' does denote a star, but the above info may provide food for thought on other occassions, especially those with a nautical theme.
