Lived in County Lietrim, Ireland, after the war, where he joined Ailtiri na hAiseirghe, the ultra-nationalist movement.
* [Recommendation for the award of a Military Cross to Captain M.A.G. Cadell] On 10 March 1943 this officer was detailed to patrol the ravine 303496 (Hunts Gap) and destroy enemy patrols cutting telephone lines or attacking pack transport supplying forward companies. He took out his patrol at dark and at 0300 hrs brought them in again without having contacted enemy. About dawn 11 March he returned to his task taking only one Non-Commissioned Officer Corporal Williamson to cover the same ground in daylight. At about 0715 hrs they saw a German patrol of six men approaching and laid themselves in ambush. At 200 yds range they fired with their Bren gun and killed two enemy. The other four took cover in a fold in a field of beans and opened fire with a 42mm machine gun and automatics. Captain Cadell and Corporal Williamson replied and then made a quick move left flanking. They then succeeded in killing the German machine gunner and wounding the Sergeant leading the patrol and forced the remaining two to surrender. They brought back three prisoners, a machine gun, two Schmeisser guns, two Luger pistols, maps and personal papers. The courage, skill and determination of this officer provides an excellent example of the qualities required by our patrols in dominating 'no man's land' and retaining the initiative. He has shown similar qualities earlier in the North African operation in destroying by explosives German tanks at Djebel Abiod in November 1942.
[Recommended by Lt.Col. J.G. Mackellar, commanding 8th Battalion The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, 12.03.1943, approved by Brig.

* On the 1st December 1944, Capt. J.D. Campbell was ordered to take the last enemy stronghold south of Fiume Uniti, a fortified house named Caserma dei Fiume Uniti. During the night he moved forward commanding a party of six men across marshy country, walking in water breast deep for about six miles. At dawn, cold and tired, he was hidden in a wooden shack approx. 25 yds of completely open ground away from the enemy strong point, here a German dog came in - but a tin of bully was just enough to keep him quiet. After an hour of waiting for a suitable opportunity Capt. Campbell decided to rush the house, which was built on a concrete and high base. In full view of the enemy he led his men up to the barbed wire fence at the double, took the only passage to the house, broke the door in, and before the enemy could take any action captured, practically single-handed, 11 enemy soldiers and all their equipment, including 3 LMGs. Then keeping cool after his success he managed to evacuate his 11 prisoners without attracting the attention of the enemy in another house 350 yds away - he then occupied the house and took defensive measures. During the evening of the same day, still with the same little force, very tired by now, he ambushed two unaware enemy relieve parties, captured four more prisoners, and killed six more of the enemy including two officers. This feat of arms is one of the best examples of courage and leadership and self control of an officer. For his brother officers and his men such an action is always and will be a daring and difficult aim to reach.
** On 23rd April 1945 at Massa Fiscaglia (Italy) Capt. Campbell got the information that 40 Germans were defending a farm. The information emphasized that they were German troops and well dug-in in front of the house, and that they had several MGs and Panzerfaust. Judging that the risk was too big for a frontal attack the position was approached with 2 armed jeeps only. In bright daylight and in full view of the enemy two jeeps charged down the road, surprised the enemy by his devastating fire and his daring, overshot the enemy's first pit, found himself and his vehicle in and amogst the enemies, killed 8, wounded 10 and captured the remainder. On the 29th at Vigonovo (Italy) Capt. Campbell saw through his glasses a German 88mm gun firing on Padua, he decided to attack it, coming into the village by a side road, he charged the gun with his guns blazing away, captured it intact with complete crew, predictor, ammunition and three trucks loads of petrol and supplies.

HM's Lieutenant, City of London, 10.12.1958-±1968.
* On the 6th April, 1943, in the attack upon the Wadi Akarit position, the task of breaking through the enemy minefield and anti-tank ditch to the East of the Roumana feature and of forming the initial bridgehead for a Brigade of the 51st Highland Division was allotted to the Battalion of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders commanded by Lieutenant-Colonel Campbell. The attack had to form up in complete darkness and had to traverse the main offshoot of the Wadi Akarit at an angle to the line of advance. In spite of heavy machine gun and shell fire in the early stages of the attack, Lieutenant-Colonel Campbell successfully accomplished this difficult operation, captured at least 600 prisoners and led his Battalion to its objective, having to cross an unswept portion of the enemy minefield in doing so. Later, upon reaching his objective he found that a gap which had been blown by the Royal Engineers in the anti-tank ditch did not correspond with the vehicle lane which had been cleared in the minefield. Realising the vital necessity of quickly establishing a gap for the passage of anti-tank guns, he took personal charge of this operation. It was now broad daylight and, under very heavy machine-gun fire and shell fire, he succeeded in making a personal reconnaissance and in conducting operations which led to the establishing of a vehicle gap. Throughout the day Lieutenant-Colonel Campbell held his position with his Battalion in the face of extremely heavy and constant shell fire, which the enemy was able to bring to bear by direct observation. About 1630 hours determined enemy counter-attacks began to develop, accompanied by tanks. In this phase of the fighting Lieutenant-Colonel Campbell's personality dominated the battle field by a display of valour and utter disregard for personal safety, which could not have been excelled. Realising that it was imperative for the future success of the Army plan to hold the bridgehead his Battalion had captured, he inspired his men by his presence in the forefront of the battle, cheering them on and rallying them as he moved to those points where the fighting was heaviest. When his left forward company was forced to give ground he went forward alone, into a hail of fire and personally reorganised their position, remaining with the company until the attack at this point was held. As reinforcements arrived upon the scene he was seen standing in the open directing the fight under close range fire of enemy infantry and he continued to do so although already painfully wounded in the neck by shell fire. It was not until the battle died down that he allowed his wound to be dressed. Even then, although in great pain, he refused to be evacuated, remaining with his Battalion and continuing to inspire them by his presence on the field. Darkness fell with the Argylls still holding their positions, though many of its officers and men had become casualties. There is no doubt that but for Lieutenant-Colonel Campbell's determination, splendid example of courage and disregard of pain, the bridgehead would have been lost. This officer's gallantry and magnificent leadership when his now tired men were charging the enemy with the bayonet and were fighting them at hand grenade range, are worthy of the highest honour, and can seldom have been surpassed in the long history of the Highland Brigade.

Regular Army Reserve of Officers
* On the 5th June in the attack on the enemy position at SGHIFET ES SIDRA (in Sq 3641) the Brigade was heavily counterattacked and "A" Squadron of 8 RTR with 10 tanks was ordered to cover the left flank of 7th RTR. After the battle had been in progress for some time and only five tanks were in action, 2/Lieut. CARTER helped to cover the withdrawal of the guns. His 2-pounder went out of action but he carried on firing his Besa until his tank was knocked out. On the 8th June 42 in the attack on the enemy positions S.W. of B.13 (M.R. 907631) 2/Lieut. CARTER once again led his troop with great skill and daring. In the action 360 prisoners were taken and many anti-tank guns. This officer has throughout all these operations set a very high example to his men and his leadership has at all times been most skillful and daring. In the battle of the 8th June I actually saw him jump out of his tank under heavy shell fire to cary in a wounded Italian prisoner. This officer is thoroughly deserving of a decoration.
Recommended by Lt.Col. P.N. Veale, Commanding Officer 8th Battalion Royal Tank Regiment, approved by Brig. G.W. Richards, Commander 1st Army Tank Brigade, General C.J.E. Auchinleck, Commander-in-Chief Middle East. [Citation courtesy of Mr Alain Brogniez]

* Major Chapman commanded 172 L.A.A. Battery in FRANCE from 16 July, his Battery has worked with 29 Armoured Brigade and he has invariably used his guns to the maximum both against aircraft and against ground targets. He himself has been indefatigable in assisting in every way to deal with contingencies as they have arisen. Personally commanding an A.A. Crusader tank he has on many occasions shot up enemy vehicles, dealt with snipers and pockets of Germans. He and his small party alone collected 410 prisoners during the advance from L'AIGLE to the France-Belgian frontier. By his keenness, energy and personal courage at all times, he has set an example which is reflected by the officers and men under his command.

* On the 21st February, 1951, No. 243086, Captain R. V. Harley, Royal Sussex Regiment, attached Royal Army Ordnance Corps, was on duty at No. 3 Central Ammunition Sub-Depot, Hampstead Norris (Bramley), supervising the receipt of ammunition. He was in the sorting shed when a round of 25 Pdr. Ammunition exploded and injured six soldiers of the Royal Pioneer Corps, one of whom died later. The blast was so violent that it blew other shell to pieces, reduced many more to a very dangerous condition, started a fire, and blanketed the area with smoke. Captain Harley immediately ordered all men out of the building, leaving it himself only when he could see no more personnel. He re-entered the building almost immediately to find some injured men running out. Without hesitation he went right up to the scene of the explosion which was still enveloped in smoke, and saw flames. He ordered a soldier who was at his side (No. 14441727) Pte. McGarrigle, Royal Pioneer Corps, to fetch fire appliances, and himself went further into the smoke where he found a badly injured soldier staggering about. By this time another helper had arrived and Captain Harley, after seeing that the injured soldier was being evacuated, ran to the office next door to call the ambulance and fire brigade. Next he saw that all the casualties were being attended to, and ordered the most serious cases to be taken to hospital straight away in a unit vehicle. Then he again went to the scene of the explosion to check up that the fire was out and that there were no further casualties, and finally ordered a roll call to see that all his personnel had been accounted for. Captain Harley, owing to his proximity to the explosion suffered considerably from its effects; he had seen the wounded men and heard their screams, and was fully aware of the possibility of further detonations taking place. In spite of this he showed bearing and leadership of the very highest order, and undoubtedly his exemplary behaviour affected the discipline of the men under his command in their efforts to extinguish the fire and succour the casualties under very hazardous circumstances.

Very late one night, after leaving a meeting, he borrowed a despatch-rider's motor-bike to get home, instead of waiting for a Staff car. He hit a tank trap in the road. Some hours later, a passing lorry stopped. His body and the bike were thrown into the back, and he was taken to the mortuary. Next morning they found he was still alive, so he was transferred to hospital, where he lay in a coma for six months, before making a full recovery.

Wales' oldest rugby cap William Harries Clement has died at the age of 91. Bill Clement played for Wales six times on the wing in 1937 in 1938 and toured with the 1938 Lions in South Africa. He was awarded the Military Cross after the Battle of the Bulge during World War II in 1944 and was secretary of the Welsh Rugby Union from 1956 to 1981. Although he was born in Llanelli on April 9, 1915 and played his club rugby for the Scarlets, after becoming secretary of the Union, he lived most of his life in Llanishen, Cardiff. As a 19-year-old he played in the Llanelli side that lost 16-8 to New Zealand in 1935 It was said 'in the good old days' he and his secretary ran the Union on their own. Clement made his Wales debut against England at Twickenham in January 1937 at the age of 21 and his pass sent Wilfred Wooller over for Wales' try. Only scrum half Haydn Tanner, from that team, still survives and becomes the oldest living Wales cap.
Justice of the Peace (JP).

* [Recommendation for the award of a Periodic Military Cross to War Substantive Lieutenant G.W. Clissold]. Lieut. Clissold has been with 3 Survey Regiment since landing in Sicily. He received an immediate emergency commission in the field in April 1944. His work as an officer has been of a high order, first as a Flash Spotting Officer; his section was almost continuously in action up to April 1, 1945. During this period the section was responsible for locating many hostile batteries and sending in a considerable amount of intelligence information. To achieve this high standard Lt. Clissold had to perform many difficult and dangerous reconnaissances, at times over roads and tracks which had not been swept for mines, and in positions which were under shell and mortar fire. In addition he had to spend long periods at isolated Observation Posts under very adverse weather conditions, and with many periods of shelling and mortaring. Despite this, the health and morale of his section was maintained at the highest pitch by his example and leadership, and the results were uniformly good. From April 1st, Lieut. Clissold was transferred to command a survey section. His section was detached from the troop to work with the New Zealand Division during the advance from Sillaro river to Trieste. During this time the section has been uniformly successful in producing survey data for the guns in ample time despite the rapid advance. The success has been largely due to the skill and leadership of Lieut. Clissold. At all times and in all circumstances his energy and initiative have been unbounded and his example and complete disregard for personal safety have proved an inspiration to the troops under his command.
[Recommended 03.06.1945 by Lt.Col. D.A. Hall-Dare, Commanding Officer 3rd Survey Regiment RA, approved by Brig. H. Greene, Corps Commander RA, 13 Corps, Lt.Gen. John Harding, Commander 13 Corps, and Lt.Gen. R.L. McCreery, General Officer Commanding Eighth Army]

* For most conspicuous bravery on November 6, 1918 at Pont-sur-Sombre, Major Cloutman, after reconnoitring the river crossing found the Quantes Bridge almost intact, but prepared for demolition. Leaving his party under cover he went forward alone, swam across the river and having cut 'leads' from the charges, returned the same way, despite the fact that the bridge and all approached thereto were swept by enemy shells and machine gun fire at close range. Although the bridge was blown up later in the day by other means, the abutments remained intact.
** For conspicuous gallantly and devotion to duty at Banteux on the morning of 30th September, 1918, when he made a personal reconnaissance under heavy machine-gun fire to ascertain the possibilities of bridging the Canal de L'Escaut.
