walford, j. o.

Captain, 1/8 Worcestershire Regiment

Military Cross (Apr. 2, Dec. 19, 1919)

In the attack on Bazuel on October 18, 1918, he commanded a company in the leading wave with conspicuous courage and skill. When the advance was held up by heavy machine-gun fire, he made a personal reconnaissance, and gaining touch with a company on the left, he gave orders to the remainder of the line to advance, gaining the objective with few casualties. His company captured a complete battery of 4.2-inch howitzers.
