Footnotes

  • D.C.M. London Gazette 18.7.1941.

    In recognition of gallant and distinuished services in the Middle East.

    For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. During the attack on Sanchil on 17 March 1941, when the company came under heavy fire, this warrant officer was wounded and severely shaken by a shell which burst very close to him: nevertheless he remained at duty and gave the men a magnificent example of determination and indifference to danger. During the attack on Railway Dumps on the 25th March 1941, this W.O. was an inspiring example to all in his dash and determination to close with the enemy, when his company seized its objective capturing many prisoners and machine guns.
