Action for which recommended -
In a prepared ambush on the BANMAUK-INDAW railway on 26th March '44, Pte. Bramble showed great courage and devotion to duty. During the actual ambush he was invaluable as a Runner and in the action that followed brought in wounded men.
Three times he left his position and went forward under fire to bring in seriously wounded men, carrying them back with their arms at great risk to himself. Each time after attending the wounded and evacuating them to R.A.P. he returned to Pl. HQ and did good work as Runner.
On 4th April, 44, while in Bivouac in the AUKTAW area, the Coln. was attacked by a Jap patrol. During the ensuing action, Pte. Bramble once again distinguished himself by bringing in wounded under fire and at great risk to himself. Here Pte. Bramble was himself suffering from Malaria and exhaustion and had a temperature of 104 degrees.
During the whole campaign, this soldier showed cool courage and great understanding of his work.
