Action for which recommended :-

On 3rd April 1944, 41 and 46 Columns were moving by night in the area of THETKYTYIN. C.S.M. ROBSON was in the rear of the Column. At 2015 hrs the Column's tail of 100 animals and equipment was ambushed with the result that animals stampeded and confusion reigned. C.S.M. Robson quickly organised all spare men in the vicinity and covered the evacuation of all animals and stores in the area. He and his sections withstood two further attacks by the enemy before finally withdrawing without loss of a men.

His prompt action undoubtedly saved valuable equipment and lives, in addition to inflicting heavier casualties on the enemy than those sustained by the Column. Valuable identifications were later obtained from enemy dead
