The heroic efforts of the Royal Navy and Merchant Marine is considered by many to be one of the key turning points of World War II. The lifting of the siege of Malta prevented the Axis from controlling the Mediterrean and in turn from gaining control of the Middle Eastern oil fields.

  • On his first voyage with the Merchant Navy, his ship, the freighter Waimarama, was involved in the 'Pedestal' Convoy to Malta. The Waimarama was sunk on August 13th, and Treves helped save several of his shipmates, including the only ships' officer to survive the sinking, 3rd Wireless Operator John Jackson. Treves, then 17 years old, received the British Empire Medal and the Lloyd's War Medal for his actions.
