Military Cross MC 21.10.1943 Sicily * [citation available upon request]
25.10.1941     commissioned, Royal Armoured Corps [emergency commission]
(1943)     44th Battalion Royal Tank Regiment (Sicily) (MC)
 
* Recommendation for the award of an immediate Military Cross to Lt. S.W.M. Hales: At first light on the 19th July 1943, 'B' Squadron 44 Royal Tank Regiment were in counter-attack reserve in the area 8969. Lt. Hales was moving out on patrol with his troop when information was received that 2 Inniskillings were being counter-attacked by German tanks and infantry in the area of the bridge at 878698. Without waiting for the support of the rest of the Squadron he engaged 4 Mk. III Specials, knocking out one and driving the other three away. His own tank was knocked out by an anti-tank gun and so he changed over to another tank and proceeded to machine-gun the German infantry who were driven back. His second tank being knocked out, Lt. Hales changed into a third and with one other tank, supported 'C' Company 2 Cameronians on their objective. On the way forward he knocked out at least one anti-tank gun. Lt. Hales, although under heavy and continuous mortar-fire, remained with the forward infantry until it was possible to relieve him, seven and a half hours after the action had started. During all this time Lt. Hales showed an offensive spirit and complete disregard for his personal safety and was primarily responsible for increasing and maintaining the western end of the bridgehead.

01.1941? - 29.06.1941 Officer Commanding, 11th Battery
[In June 1941 the 1st Field Regiment RA, then forming part of the 5th Indian Infantry Brigade, 4th Indian Division, began the invasion of Syria against the Vichy French. It was during an advanced reconnaissance that the vehicle in which Major Hall was travelling, ran into a forward German machine gun position supported by tanks and was severely wounded in the ensuing fire-fight. His badly mauled party were obliged to surrender and Major Hall was removed to a nearby German Field Hospital, where despite great care provided by his captors, his wounds necessitated the amputation of his right arm. He sadly did not survive the ordeal and died of his wounds on the 29th June 1941.
The incident is graphically described in a letter written to Major Hall's sister, by his commanding officer, Lieut. Colonel T.S. Dobree: “On the day he was wounded your brother had gone forward in his car to a village to reconnoitre. All was quite at the edge of the village, which it was known had shortly before contained some enemy and in which also some of our own infantry had advanced. He was sending back a message on the wireless to his battery when suddenly machine gun fire opened on his party. They took cover behind the car but fire became heavier when some tanks appeared. Your brother decided to get his party across the road to better cover. In doing so he was hit three times in the right shoulder and arm and in the left hand. The car in front was set on fire and one of the men rather burned. As they were under the car, more tanks appeared and they eventually had to surrender to them. They were taken to hospital and I am told, were treated very well indeed by the enemy doctors and received every attention. The shoulder wound was bad and one night a very serious haemorrhage began. Every effort was made to stop it by amputation but your brother died as a result of it....”]

* Special promotion in recognition of war service.
** For most conspicuous bravery on 9th August, 1915, at Yilghin Burnu, Gallipoli Peninsula. After the second capture of the "Green Knoll" his Battalion was forced to retire, leaving some wounded behind, owing to the intense heat from the scrub which had been set on fire. When the retirement was effected Captain Hansen, with three or four volunteers, on his own initiative, dashed forward several times some 300 to 400 yards over open ground into the scrub under a terrific fire, and succeeded in rescuing from inevitable death by burning no less than six wounded men.
*** For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He volunteered to carry out a reconnaissance, and brought back valuable information obtained under heavy artillery and machine-gun fire, which had been unprocurable from other sources. Throughout he did fine work.
**** For conspicuous gallantry at Suvla Bay on 9th September, 1915. He made a reconnaissance of the coast, stripping himself and carrying only a revolver and a blanket for disguise. He swam and "scrambled over rocks, which severely cut and bruised him, and obtained some valuable information and located a gun which was causing much damage. The undertaking was hazardous. On one occasion he met a patrol of 12 Turks who did not see him, and later a single Turk whom he lulled. He returned to our lines in a state of great exhaustion.

* Recommendation for the award of the French Croix de Guerre with vermilion star to WS/Capt. (T/Maj.) R.T. Hawes: Major HAWES was the officer commanding 216 Civil Affairs Detachment, which operated with Second Army in Normandy. From 17-19 August [1944] he waited with the forward troops during the battle round THIRY HARCOURT, so that he might enter the town and assist the civil population at the earliest opportunity. He went in with the leading reconnaissance units and gave immediate assistance to the remaining civilians, two of whom were wounded. He repeated similar courageous performances on many other occasions. His work has been outstandingand a splendid example to all ranks.
[Recommended 12.01.1945 by Brig. R.M.H. Lewis, SCAO Second Army, approved 18.01.1945 by Lt.Gen. M.C. Dempsey, commanding Second Army.] [Citation kindly provided by Mr Ben Scott Thomas]

* Recommendation for the award of the French Croix de Guerre with vermilion star to T/Maj. R.A. Hemelryk: This officer landed at La Rivière, NORMANDY, on 6th June 1944 and was given the task of controlling and co-ordinating the deployment of the two Self-Propelled batteries of this regiment which landed on 'D' Day. In the course of landing operations, his raft struck a mine and he was wounded in the leg. Appreciating that his responsibilities were of paramount importance, and that there was nobody available who could replace him, he refused medical attention. Although in considerable pain for the next three days, he controlled the batteries and carried out all the necessary reconnaissance in person often under heavy fire. Whenever there were unconfirmed reports of enemy thanks in the vicinity, and there were many, in great personal danger he visited the areas in question and covered them in detail to determine the enemy's dispositions. His complete indifference to his own safety was remarkable, and his bravery whilst suffering considerable pain from his [wounds/leg?] was an admirable example to all ranks.
[Recommended by Lt.Col. A.G. Proudlock, commanding 73rd Anti-Tank Regiment RA, approved by Brig. S.B. Rawlins, commanding 30 Corps Artillery, and by Maj.Gen. G.I. Thomas, commanding 30 Corps.] [Citation kindly provided by Mr Ben Scott Thomas]
