Riddell, Lt Col. E.P. Rifle Brigade (att’d Cambs Regt.)

DSO LG: 11.12.16 Maj. (T-Lt Col.)

For conspicuous gallantry in action. He showed the greatest skill and foresight in assembling his battalion and subsequently launched them to the attack without a casualty in broad daylight, on ground observed by the enemy. His personal bravery, energy and example exercised great influence over all ranks.

Bar LG: 26.09.17 Citation LG: 09.01.18. Maj. (T-Lt Col.)

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty when in command of a battalion in reserve during an attack. He threw in a counter-attack at a counter stroke by the enemy, and held on to an eminence of the highest tactical importance throughout the afternoon. His dispositions not only allowed the brigade to fall back in order before superior numbers, but materially reduced the enemy’s strength, as he held off three counter-attacks and inflicted crushing casualties on the enemy. He eventually assumed command and reorganised two other units of the brigade, and passed four times through a heavy hostile barrage to his brigade headquarters to report on the situation. He handled a most difficult situation with consummate skill, and his utter disregard of danger not only encouraged the men to further effort but was a magnificent example of courage and determination.

2nd Bar LG: 26.07.18. Maj. and Lt-Col. (T-Brig-Gen.)

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty during several days of severe fighting in rearguard actions, when he repeatedly organised counter-attacks, and personally led two of them. After the whole of his staff had become casualties, and two of his commanding officers had been hit, his magnificent example, and total disregard of danger had the greatest effect in steadying his command.

Distinguished Service Order

Clayton, Major M.C.

LG: 26.11.17. (Citation LG: 06.04.18.)

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He marked out the assembly position for the battalion under very heavy shell and machine gun fire, and afterwards conducted the relief and assembly for the attack. He carried out a daring reconnaissance of the battalion front in daylight under rifle, machine gun and shell fire, and showed the greatest gallantry throughout the operations.

Looker, 2nd Lieut. A.W.

LG: 25.08.16.

For conspicuous gallantry when leading a raid on the enemy’s trenches. In the face of heavy fire he forced his way through uncut wire and ran up and down the enemy’s parapet firing in their faces.

Murray, Maj. D.T. Hampshire Regt att’d 4/5th Black Watch temp att’d Camb Regt. (as Commanding Officer)

LG: 26.01.17.

For conspicuous gallantry in action. He showed great skill and resource in handling his battalion over a very extended front and over a very difficult country. He seized all his objective, took many prisoners, and eventually consolidated the position won.

Saint, Major. (T-Lt Col.) E.T. Saint.

LG: 16.09.18.

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty covering a period of ten days operations, during the first seven of which he showed marked initiative in organising lines of defence, especially in front of a town, where he held up the enemy advance, enabling the guns to be withdrawn. When the officer commanding another battalion became a casualty, he assumed command of both battalions. Later, when the officer commanding the brigade became a casualty, he took command of the brigade, organising a counter-attack at a critical time, and re-occupying the line. He kept the men splendidly together when nearly all the officers and non-commissioned officers had become casualties.

Hollis, Lieut. C.H. 5th East Surrey Regt. att’d Camb Regt.

MC LG: 16.09.18. (Citation LG: 16.09.18.)

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. At a time when the situation was very obscure, he made his way half a mile across the open under heavy enemy barrage, and brought back most valuable information as to the position of affairs. He did very fine work.

Bar LG: 01.01.19.

For conspicuous gallantry during operations at Morlancourt on 8th September 1918. After two companies of the battalion had failed to capture a very strongly held enemy position, the remaining two companies were ordered to advance. This officer led his company forward with great skill and courage, and reached the objective, capturing a large number of prisoners and seven machine guns. On the following day, while clearing Morlancourt, his company was held up by a machine gun. He, with a section, rushed and captured the gun, his gallant action clearing the way for the company’s advance.

2nd Bar LG: 30.07.19. (Citation LG: 30.07.19.)

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty on August 28th 1918, at Maltz Horn Ridge. He led his company with great gallantry to the final objective. On arriving there he found a dangerous gap between his flank and the next unit. He thereupon returned through the hostile Barrage and found that the missing company had lost all its officers, and had become greatly disorganised. He quickly re-organised the company and led them on to their objective, when he consolidated both companies. His coolness and initiative materially contributed to the success of the operation.

Walker, 2nd Lieut. E.

MC LG: 18.10.17. (Citation LG: 07.03.18.)

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty in an action. He commanded his company when the company commander had been wounded, and led a most successful counter-attack, which saved the flank of a neighbouring battalion and inflicted heavy casualties on the enemy. He also rallied and took command of men of another unit, and when runners had failed to get through, he went under a heavy enemy barrage to the brigade forward station to report the situation. He set a splendid example of leadership and determination.

Bar LG: 26.11.17. (Citation LG: 06.04.18.)

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He was the senior officer in the front line captured by his battalion and formed a defensive flank when [the] left became exposed and the companies were somewhat disorganised. By his splendid example he kept up the spirits of his men and organised the defences of the position with great skill.

2nd Bar LG: 15.02.19. (Citation LG: 30.07.19.)

For conspicuous gallantry and initiative near Mametz on August 25th, 1918. The battalion had to attack over 3,000 yards to reach its objective. On crossing a ridge all companies came under extremely heavy artillery and machine gun fire, and the centre of the attack lost direction. He immediately went forwards on his own initiative, rallied and reorganised the centre of the attack, and led them forward. The flanks of the attack had meanwhile become hung up by machine gun nests, but the rapid advance of his force proved the turning point of the attack and the whole line was enabled to resume the advance and consolidate. On arrival at the objective, he led a bombing party and drove the enemy out of a communications trench. Throughout the operation he showed marked courage and leadership.

Military Cross and Bar

Baynes-Smith, 2nd Lieut. (T-Lieut.) H.W.

MC LG: 07.03.18.

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. During an enemy counter-attack he took a Lewis gun from a burning tank at great personal risk, and brought it into action, firing it himself. This action materially assisted in repelling the attack. He displayed great personal courage, and set a fine example to his men.

Bar LG: 30.07.19.

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. During operations south of Meaulte on August 22nd, 1918, he led his company to the attack in the most gallant manner, and when all the officers of another company were casualties, he collected the company, took command, and consolidated the objective of both companies. Again, during the attack north east of Carnoy of August 25th, 1918, he led his company from reserve through a heavy barrage to support a company which had sustained heavy casualties, and materially assisted in the capture and consolidation of the objective. He set a splendid example to all ranks.

Clinton, Capt.  U.S. Army att’d Camb Regt.

War Office List 27.10.18.

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty at Voormezeele from 25th to 28th of April 1918, whilst regimental medical officer continuously evacuating and attending to the wounded under very heavy shell fire. He also, in the absence of stretcher bearers, crossed a road swept by machine-gun fire and enemy barrage and attended to a wounded man in the open. While attending to this man, two stretcher bearers carrying a wounded man were wounded by a shell. He brought in all four himself. Later, during operations when our first line had been pushed back and the enemy were within a few yards of our aid post, he personally organised the removal of nine stretcher cases and himself assisted to carry the last stretcher. He showed the greatest coolness and gallantry throughout the whole of the operations."

Bar War Office List 31.01.19.

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty near Epehy on 19 September 1918. Lieutenant Clinton established his aid post close to the assembly position in order to be able to render aid at the earliest moment. His aid post was under heavy artillery fire all the morning and during the night 19-19 September, the only protection consisting of sheets of corrugated iron. In spite of the heavy fire this officer worked incessantly through the period. The casualties were unfortunately heavy and, in addition, there was a large number of wounded from other regiments lying out in front of the village. Lieutenant Clinton organised stretcher parties under heavy fire and by night the whole area in front of the village was cleared of wounded. But for the example set by him under fire and the courage he displayed it would have been impossible for them to have been cleared that night and his actions undoubtedly saved many lives.

Coles, Lieut. A.E.M. 4th Suffolk Regt. att’d Camb. Regt.

MC LG: 15.02.19. (Citation LG: 30.07.19.)

During the operations south of Meaulte on August 22nd, 1918, he displayed great courage and skill in leading his company to the attack. When a heavy counter-attack drove back the battalion on the right, leaving the right flank of his company exposed, he immediately carried out a daring reconnaissance and established a defensive flank with his reserve platoon. This flank he consolidated and held until the situation on his right was restored. His complete disregard of danger inspired all ranks under him.

Bar LG: 04.10.19.

For conspicuous gallantry and able leadership of the 18th/19th September, 1918, at Epehy in command of one of the assaulting companies. Although the troops in front had, owing to the mist, entirely lost direction, he directed his company to the village, and carried out his task of mopping up machine gun nests with great vigour. He spent the whole of the following night garrisoning the village, and successfully dealt with a strong point which had been overlooked. Next day he led his company successfully in a fresh attack.

Kemplen, Lieut. (A-Capt.) E.J.R. Suffolk Regt. att’d Camb. Regt.

MC LG: 16.08.17.

Bar LG: 16.09.18.

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. When in command of a rearguard company he personally remained behind covering the withdrawal of his company and killing four of the enemy while doing so.

MC LG: 25.08.16.

Bar LG: 14.11.16.

Throughout the day his cheerfulness and pluck gained him the complete confidence of his company.

Wright, 2nd Lieut. H.

MC LG: 16.09.18.

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. This officer held on to his platoon after both flanks had withdrawn, and by his tenacity and skill delayed the enemy advance over a large area for over half an hour giving the rest of the line time to withdraw. In the ultimate withdrawal he remained behind covering the retirement of his platoon only withdrawing after a hand to hand fight with the enemy. His example throughout the operations was splendid.

Bar LG: 16.09.18.

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty while in command of an advanced post. Thanks to his fine example of gallantry and determination, his men, with steady rifle and Lewis gun fire, drove the enemy back after the latter had practically surrounded the post. Against greatly superior numbers he held this post for seven hours, and inflicted sever casualties on the enemy with 11,000 rounds at close range.

This Warrant Officer immediately went forward alone, and, with great gallantry and disregard of danger, killed three and captured thirty of the enemy and four machine guns, thereby clearing the way for his company and disposing of an obstruction which might have upset the whole operation. He did magnificent work.

Burbridge, CSM G. 325440.

LG: 07.03.18.

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. When all the officers of his company had become casualties he took command of the company when it was in a position of great tactical importance.

When ordered to withdraw he effected a skilful movement with few losses, and destroyed two enemy machine guns before leaving. He displayed good courage and good leadership.

Coe, CSM. J. 176.

His courage and leadership inspired all ranks.

Gill, 2nd Lieut. K.C.

LG: 15.09.15.

For gallant and most useful work on patrol duty on several occasions: Near Ypres he went with another officer along the line of the enemy’s trenches to investigate some dead ground concealed from our trenches. On 14th May 1915, he went out and remained on the German parapet 1 ½ hours gathering very invaluable information.

On the night of the 1st-2nd June, near Houplines, when reconnoitring hostile wire with another officer, the patrol was discovered and heavily fire on.

His work throughout was of the highest order.

Johnson, Capt. A.

LG: 30.07.19.

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty on September 5th/6th 1918, during the attack near Nurlu. His company came under heavy machine gun fire, and was at the same time held up by thick wire.

Holmes, Pte. A.J. 326580.    Cambridge.

LG: 28.03.18.

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty as a stretcher-bearer. He dressed and evacuated the wounded all night under heavy fire. At dawn, though wounded in the shoulder while carrying several more cases, he volunteered to cross the open to an advanced post where casualties were occurring, and made two journeys, bringing back a wounded man each time on his shoulders. He made two more journeys to the regimental aid post before succumbing to exhaustion.

He was successful in capturing two machine guns and crews, and gained and consolidated his objective. Later, while acting as CSM he again displayed fine leadership in collecting a platoon whose leaders had become casualties, and leading it to its final objective, captured a machine gun and crew. Throughout the above operations he set a splendid example to all ranks.

LG: 16.01.19.

On the morning of 8th August 1918 West of Morlancourt he rushed single-handed an enemy machine gun position, killed two of the team and captured the gun and four prisoners, his initiative preventing many casualties to his platoon. Although wounded, he continued to lead his men with utter disregard for his personal safety, and inflicted sever losses on the enemy until again severely wounded. He showed a splendid example to all ranks under most trying and difficult circumstances.

At Epehy, on the 19th September 1918, on arriving at company headquarters with rations, he found that the company was badly disorganised, having lost all its officers. He remained with the company for the next twenty-four hours, and succeeded in thoroughly re-organising it under very heavy shell fire. Later, under heavy fire, he gallantly led his ration party up to a captured position.

Muffitt, Pte. W.H. 326651.    Wisbech.

LG: 22.10.17. Citation: 26.01.18.

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty in an attack. He was the only survivor of a Lewis gun team to reach the final objective. Though twice wounded he fought his gun throughout the day, holding an advanced post in front of the rest of his company for four hours. Twice he went over the open under the heaviest fire to fetch ammunition. When wounded a second time he rejoined his company with very great difficulty to prevent his gun from falling into the hands of the enemy. His gallant action undoubtedly saved the flank of his company, and was a magnificent example to all.

Parry MM, L-Sgt. W.C. 40946.   Bramfield.

LG: 12.03.19. (Citation LG: 02.12.19.)

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. On the 14th October, 1918, on the occasion of the attack on Auby, he led half the company.

LG: 11.03.20.

For gallantry and devotion to duty during the period 17th September to 11th November 1918, particularly during the advance on Sameon.
