Rank and Name

Acting Sergeant Andrew Neville FRAZER

Action for which recommended -

Sergeant Frazer was a wireless operator in a party occupying an observation post at Henu Block on the night of 13th April, 1944. The object was to direct Air Support at dawn. During the night the observation post was heavily shelled and mortared and a number of casualties was sustained. The wireless set was destroyed but Sergeant Frazer immediately went back for another set, returning to the post under enemy fire.

A similar incident occurred during the attack on Mogaung on 8th June, 1944, but this non-commissioned officer kept his wireless set working.

On both these occasions his skill and courage were largely responsible for the success of the Air Support.
