edmonds, w. g. b.

Lieutenant, 1st Battalion, Royal Warwickshire Regiment, Service Regiment

Military Cross (July 16, 1918).

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty in action. When the troops on the right were forced to withdraw, exposing the flank, he led a party of about sixty men from various units and counter-attacked. He obtained a footing on the high ground, when our artillery put down a heavy barrage, and he was forced to withdraw owing to casualties among his men. He showed great dash in taking the ridge.
