Footnotes

  • D.C.M. London Gazette 16.11.1915.

    For conspicuous gallantry on the 13th July 1915 on the Gallipoli Peninsula. Owing to the fire gear of a 12 pr. naval gun breaking down, it became necessary to cock the lock with a drag rope. This was done by Gunner Clarke, who was obliged to stand in a very exposed position and under an extremely heavy fire, but he continued to fire the gun until ordered to get under cover. His coolness and bravery were most marked.
