Regtl. No.

I.A. 491

Rank and Name

Acting Lieutenant-Colonel Peter Geoffrey CANE

Action for which recommended :-

A/Lt. Col. CANE has shown outstanding leadership and outstanding courage during five attacks on strongly defended positions.

During these actions, he personally led a decisive bayonet assault thereby ensuring success. During the attack on WAINGMAW, having by his brilliant leadership captured his Column's objective, with his right flank exposed by the troops on his right being unable to secure their objective, this officer's great ability, determination and complete disregard of personal safety, resulted in the position being held in the face of successive enemy counter attacks and enemy penetration.

This recommendation is based on personal observation of this Officer's sterling qualities without which, success would not have been obtained.
