Footnotes

  • M.C. London Gazette 25.11.1916.

    He led a stretcher party under heavy fire, and personally superintended the collection and evacuation of the wounded for thirty hours. He displayed great courage and determination throughout.

    Bar to the M.C. London Gazette 16.9.1918.

    For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty during prolonged fighting. For about a fortnight he worked with but little sleep and food, collecting and carrying in wounded under intense shell and machine-gun fire. During this period he maintained touch with six different battalions, and successfully got away all their wounded.

    Second Bar to the M.C. London Gazette 2.12.1918.

    He displayed conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty inattending to the wounded and superintending their evacuation from advanced positions. To his admirable organisation and self-sacrificing endurance, working without rest or sleep, many wounded men owe their lives, and his coolness and courage when leading his stretcher bearers forward under heavy fire were admirable.

    A total of 170 MC and 2 bars were awarded during WW1 and of those 22 were to the R.A.M.C.
