This NCO in mopping up operations on 17th April 1944 displayed great
courage and initiative. At a time when it appeared the
operation was coming to a standstill, Cpl. Adamu Gafasa rallied his
section and continued his advance.
He has subsequently proved himself to be an excellent section Comd
who uses his head and has real control over his section.
1st his section advanced within a few yards of a Jap dug-in position
and inflicted casualties with a Bren gun at very close quarters.
