Hugh Collier was awarded the Ushakov Medal, on behalf of the Russian Government for his participation some 70 years ago in what Winston Churchill called the worst journey in the world.  Thousands of Allied seamen lost their lives as the British ships sailed in the unwelcoming, stormy water of the Arctic ocean under a constant threat of being attacked by German U-boats and aircraft.  This year he received the British Veterans Arctic Star.
