  • MM MM Military Medal
22nd Bn Royal Fusiliers (City of London Regiment)
Awarded Military Medal: The German's blew up a big mine in the British Lines, and wrecked all the trenches in the vicinity, but a sergeant and 2 men scrambled over the wreckage and held the crater for several hours against the enemy until help arrived. Some bombardiers came up and the Germans were driven back. The Germans put up a strong artillery fire, and one time looked like taking the crater. All 3 men received the Military Medal. Commemorated on the Thiepval Memorial.
