This Scholarship will be a memorial to the late Lt. Commander W. E. Sanders, VC, DSO, RN. Lt. Commander Sanders was granted the Victoria Cross in recognition of his conspicuous gallantry, consummate coolness, and skill in command of one of His Majesty’s ships in action. He was drowned in 1917 when his ship, the Prize (one of the ‘mystery’ or ‘Q’ ships) was lost with all hands as the result of an engagement with one or more enemy submarines. In 1998 the Scholarship’s fund was augmented by Professor Graham Simpson, a former Sanders Memorial Scholar.
