Footnotes

  • M.M. London Gazette 14.10.1943.

    Serving with 176 Highland Field Ambulance R.A.M.C.

    This man was a stretcher bearer accompanying 7th Bn. The Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders in the attack on 23/24 October 1942 at Alamein. When, on October 24, casualties occured in an area (East of "Stirling") swept by enemy machine gun and mortar fire, Pte Watt volunteered unhesitatingly to go out with Pte Duffy to bring the wounded back. Many attempts proved unsuccessful owing to the accuracy of the enemy fire, but subsequently, in the early hours of 25 October, under cover of a screen of fire from our own machine guns, the party reached the wounded men and brought them to safety. Pte Watt worked unsparingly throughout the operation, and shewed devotion to duty of a very high order. At a later stage, for three days Pte Watt voluntarily remained at an Ambulance Car Post in a position exposed to frequent shelling and bombing attacks and worked unsparingly in rendering first aid and bringing in casualties. Throughout the operations his courage and devotion to duty were of the highest order.
