Silk Cut Nautical Award presented to Christine MacClounnan (nee MacFarlane) at the Dorchester Hotel in London in 1991, for her bravery when rescuing her husband Kenneth MacClounnan, Balephuil, from drowning. The couple were out in Kevan Brown`s, Balephuil, fishing boat `Travee` in Gunna Sound when a freak wave wrecked the boat. Christine prevented Kenneth (who could not swim) from being washed out to sea by dragging him ashore with her – an effort that took an hour of swimming in difficult conditions. Glass and brass on marble plinth.
