Maybe James Fisher in Barrow could help with what the award was for

Hello Mac,
The award was the MBE not the OBE.

mv OPEPE British coaster, James Fisher & Sons. 362 tons , built in 1937. Survived the war.
London Gazette 3 January 1945 - New Year's Honours List 1945.
Hollywood, Henry - Captain - MBE(Civ).

Probably not for one specific action.
Regards

Mac,
Here is Henry Hollywood's WWII medal card held at Kew in piece BT 395/1.
This may also be his WWI medal card held at Kew in piece BT 359/1. The year of birth is one out on his WWI card but I suspect the same man. His WWII Dis. A. was S36217.

Regards
