Military Medal

'On the night 30th/31st July, 1917, near MESSINES at an Advanced Regimental Aid Post on the eastern slope of MESSINES RIDGE, this N.C.O. carried a wounded machine gunner to the Relay Post under fire. During the second enemy barrage, word came that a Battalion cook had been wounded in the advance of the Post. Lance Corporal JAMIESON and Private CUNNINGHAM volunteered and went out under heavy fire and brought the cook to the Aid Post. Lance Corporal JAMIESON displayed great gallantry and devotion to duty carrying stretchers with casualties from 4 a.m. to 5 p.m. until relieved. His work throughout was done under circumstances of extreme danger and he showed great determination and set a fine example for his comrades.'
