Action for which recommended -

This officer is one of the outstanding personalities of this Force. Apart from the excellent work he had done on the veterinary side, he has always been willing to turn his hand to any job however unpleasant in times of emergency.

During the move out of 77 Bde he organised at the shortest notice at TINKAUE a Transit Camp not only for animals but for the personnel passing through. On this occasion his energy and enthusiasm as always overcame any difficulties caused by lack of resources.
