|Fate||Returned to Australia
'During the operations east of YPRES 20th/22nd September 1917, Cpl. HUNGERFORD was situated on the right and dangerous flank. At all times he displayed great gallantry and coolness. On the 20th September after consolidation, it was ascertained that there was a shortage of bombs. Infoming his senior N.C.Os. he went back through a heavy barrage, halfway to the dump he was blown up by a shell. Although badly shaken he continued his journey to the dump and returned to the line with three boxes of bombs.'
