Action for which recommended :-

At Thetkegyyin on 26 March 44 Pte. Munt was Medical Orderly attached to one of the Columns of his Regiment during their attack on enemy positions. During this attack one of the machine gunners was seriously wounded and lying in an exposed position. Pte. Munt ran out under heavy fire to dress this man's wounds. While doing this Pte. Munt came under close fire from enemy snipers. He promptly seized the L.M.G. lying on the ground and silenced the snipers. He then carried the wounded man back to cover and again ran out and brought in the L.M.G. On both occasions heavy fire was being maintained by the enemy. Throughout the action Pte. Munt displayed great courage and worked unceasingly dressing the wounded and caring for them under most difficult conditions.
