A Great War and D.C.M. and M.M. group of five to Private A.Johnstone, Highland Light Infantry,
D.C.M. London Gazette 3.10.1918.
For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty when acting as runner. No amount of fire stopped him getting his messages through, and his high spirits were an inspiration to all who saw him. He gained valuable information when taking part in two daylight patrols, and took a leading part in repelling enemy attacks. His conduct throughout was worthy of the highest praise.
