Medals

Military Medal

'For great gallantry and devotion to duty during operations to east of YPRES on evening of 11th October, 1917. This man was in charge of a bearer squad, carrying wounded from a forward R.A.P. and worked continuously over a particularly difficult and heavily shelled area for a period of 78 hours. On the abovementioned evening, while carrying a wounded man, enemy shelling became very heavy and Lance Corporal GREEN was twice knocked over by the concussion of bursting shells; he, however, carried on and brought the man safely through to the next relay. He continued working until relieved several hours later. His work throughout the operations 12th/20th October, 1917, was excellent and worthy of much praise.'
