'Near LE BARQUE, FRANCE, on the 24/26th February, 1917, Cpl. DALZELL, who was in charge of Headquarters signallers and runners, showed the greatest bravery and devotion to duty throughout. He continuously supervised the laying of new telephone lines to the front line, often under exceptionally heavy artillery and machine gun fire. I cannot speak too highly of the work of this N.C.O.'
