Military Medal

'For conspicuous Gallantry and devotion to duty in action East of YPRES on 12th October 1917. During the Operation of the 12th/13th this man was on duty at the R.A.P. continuously during the whole period, having no sleep. He was frequently under very heavy shell fire. Most of the cases had to be placed outside the dugout and in spite of the fact that many men were again wounded by bursting shells, Private BRADLEY remained at his Post, dressing cases and attending to their comfort. His cheerfulness, courage and devotion to duty set a splendid example to all.'
