Military Medal

'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. On 16th October, 1917, when in charge of a team sent with engineering material to his Battery at TOKIO (east of YPRES), the heavy hostile barrage killed several of the horses, overturning and smashing the wagon. Driver T. DALGLEISH, in spite of the continuous heavy fire, improvised a sledge from cupolas and succeeded in delivering all the material at the gun position.'
