Footnotes

  • M.C. London Gazette 16.9.1918.

    Lieutenant Archibald Brown, Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.

    For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. This officer, in command of a fighting patrol, was ordered to clear the enemy out of a strong point in an advanced trench. On reaching the trench the patrol came under very heavy machine-gun fire; he at once dashed forward with his men and succeeded in putting three guns out of action, killing the teams, and bringing back a prisoner. Though wounded, he continued to do duty during the remainder of the operations.
