There are 1 comment on the story from Dec 5, 2007, titled After 67 years, a medal to honour Lancastria's fallen and survivors. In it, reports that:

“Why should my father's life and the lives of those who died with him be mis-valued against others who are remembered and honoured for their part in the war?”

SCOTTISH survivors and victims of the worst maritime disaster in British history are to be honoured with a medal in a victory for war veterans backed by The Scotsman. via

Dear Sirs,
My father was a Welsh soldier who survived the sinking of HMT Lancastria. Is the medal available to other than Scotish soldiers. I have written to 'The Army' but received no comment.
Yours faithfully,
D. Selby.
