'On the morning of 12/5/17 at the R.A.P. near Bullecourt, his squad was carrying a wounded man from a very advanced Post to the Relay Post when they were all, with the exception of Lance Corporal Quirk, buried by a shell. Lance Corporal Quirk immediately set to work to dig the others out. While so engaged he was blown over by the concussion of a bursting shell. Recovering himself, he continued digging until his comrades wee free. Private Martin was found to be wounded in the arm but continued at his post with the wounded man. Felton went on to the Relay and brought up fresh bearers. by sheer pluck and endurance these four men succeeded in bringing back their wounded patients. The incident occurred in the face of heavy H.E., shrapnel and barrage fire. These four men [FELTON, 1807 Roy Gladstone QUIRK, 4306 Walter Dougals MARTIN, 4304 Hector Otton LANG] are always the first to volunteer for any task requiring skill and courage and are most devoted in their duty towards the wounded.'
