Military Medal

'Counter attacks of the enemy were repelled mainly through the work of my Lewis gunners who kept to their post during the whole time under a heavy bombardment by the enemy and after being repeatedly subjected to bomb attacks by small parties who crept up. Owing to the heavy casualties in my Lewis Gunners it was impossible to relieve them, and these men worked continuously during the whole period.'
