Action for which recommended :-

For personal bravery and example under heavy fire.

On 7 June 1944 during an attack on HOULA village which the enemy had strongly fortified by many foxholes and small bunkers, this G.O. was ordered to move two platoons to attack the position from a flank. The ground over which he had to move was under fire from the enemy positions but he led his party across and by skilful use of ground closed right up to the enemy, leading the final bayonet charge himself.

The capture of these positions may be attributed to the fine spirit of fearless courage shown by this G.O. who has been an inspiring example of aggressive bravery on every occasion that he has encountered the enemy.
