Gazetted 4th. Mar 1941 RMS (Rendering Mines Safe) - GM awarded for gallantry and undaunted devotion to duty. Mine Disposal Hendon Nov 40.

From here

More details here

Is it with his service record as he was RNVR?

This might be worth a try as he is listed in their roll of honour -

The Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE), originally the Society of Telegraph Engineers, honored members who served in both World Wars in publications of memorials with biographical details as well as photographs.

First and Second World War Roll of Honour. Institution of Engineering and Technology, Savoy Place, London, England.

Does anybody know where I can find the citation for the George Medal awarded to James Joseph Henry Haywood from Kent, who was an officer on board HMS Niger, when it was sunk on 5 June 1942 off of Iceland. His award of the George Medal was nothing to do with the sinking of the Niger.
