My Father was an officer on the Ibis and the captain, Darrell Brown was my sister's God father --- my father received the DSO --- sadly he died in 1973 AGED 58 as his lungs were sadly damaged by being in the water and ingesting oil,he was ,(subsequently) Lieutenant Commander Douglas Vivian --all his life he could not bear the hymn eternal father --as they sung that to keep the men together while in the water --but I am not sure if that was in Ibis as he was sunk twice he was DSO and bar .
