Bar to Military Medal

'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty during operations North East of BELLICOURT between 29th September and 1st October 1918. Hearing that there were wounded in front of our position, Private TRELOAR proceeded to the front line and crawled out on his hands and knees under heavy Machine Gun fire to where the wounded lay. He did this on two occasions and was thereby able to bring in wounded men and clear them from the front line before daylight. It was impossible to approach the men during the day and Private TRELORAR'S action was undoubtedly the means of saving the men's' lives. His courage, self-sacrifice, and devotion to duty have been on all occasions beyond praise, and he continually sets the highest example to all round him.'
