* Recommendation for the appointment as Member of the Order of the British Empire of Maj. W.M. Jackson: Major Jackson has, for the past six months, been responsible for equipping this Corps with arms and vehicles and for the very complex moves of transporter columns. Both problems presented great and constantly recurring difficulties. It has been entirely due to Major Jackson's unswerving determination that the many problems have been successfully dealt with. The hours of work be has put in have been prodigious and are the more remarkable because of the cramped and noisy conditions under which he has worked. I value Major Jackson's efforts very highly and consider he played a most important part in the maintenance of the Corps as an efficient fighting machine during the advance to Sfax and beyond.
[Recommended 13.07.1943 by Lt.Gen. Sir O.W.H. Leese Bt, commanding 30 Corps.]
** Recommendation for the award of the Military Cross to Lt. W.M. Jackson: Between the 21st and 25th Nov. 1941, the 6th Light Anti-Aircraft Battery was an example to the Column advancing on Jialo for cool courage and discipline. On the 25th November Lieut. Jackson who was escorting a small detached column of the force, seeing the infantry and armoured cars come under concealed and very heavy 2 pounder fire from the enemy entrenched in Jekhera, on his own initiative pushed his anti-aircraft gun forward and knocked out the enemy gun. I have no doubt that but for his gallant and spirited action the attack of the infantry and armoured cars would have failed or would have suffered very severe casualties. His coolness and presence of mind were of a very high order.
[Recommended 03.12.1941 by Brig. D.W. Reid, commanding 29th Indian Infantry Brigade, approved 07.12.1941 by Lt.Gen. N.M. Ritchie, commanding 8th Army, and 08.12.1941 by Gen. C.J.E. Auchinleck, commanding Middle East Forces.]

* Recommendation for the award of the Distinguished Service Order to Maj. S.J. James: Major James commanded "D" Company throughout the period 18 May to 2nd June 1940. Major James at Tournai held the important bridge at the South end of the town for 3 days. So skilfully were his sections posted and so vigilant were his men that I never had a moment's anxiety about this part of the line. No German was allowed to appear in sight of this bridge & live. A German staff car with 6 occupants were among his victims. On 24 May, at Roesbrugge-Haringe, Major James held a position as a sharp salient in the Brigade line. The enemy attacked the Company on his right rear, and the right Company of the Battalion on his left withdrew. Major James maintained his isolated position until the Brigade was ordered to withdraw at 0200 hrs on 30 May. On the canal de Bergues on 31 May, Major James beat off an enemy attack on the bridge for which he was responsible. His plan for the extrication of wounded from a very exposed section post near the bridge was well conceived and successfully carried out in the early hours of 1 June, 1940. Throughout the operations I have had the greatest confidence in Major James and his Company. He never gave up one inch of the ground, was imperturbable in the face of the most alarming reports of situations on his flanks and communicated to everyone of his command his own cool determination and confidence.
[Recommended by Brig. E.G. Miles, commanding 126th Infantry Brigade, approved by Maj.Gen. W.G. Holmes, commanding 42nd Infantry Division.]

* Recommendation for the award of the Military Cross to Capt. W.E.F. Johns: Courage and determination in hazardous operations. In the operation on Myebon Peninsula Captain Johns was in charge of the canoes setting explosives on the stakes. The work was done on mud flats 100 yards from a heavily defended beach occupied by the enemy. In all two hours were spent on the beach and throughout he displayed a high degree of courage and initiative, all the stakes in his section being destroyed. The successful opposed and unopposed landings carried out could not have been achieved had it not been for the preliminary operations carried out by the C.O.P.P. teams. This act of approaching and exploding the protective stakes guarding the selected beach on the morning of D Dayand under the nose of the enemy is strongly commended for recognition.

* Recommendation for the award of an immediate Military Cross to T/Maj. C.A. Joss: [Only page 2 avalaible] ... being successfully effected, two S.P.s [self-propelled vehicles] and a Tiger opened up on the tanks from behind a high bank about 800 yards away. Eleven tanks were knocked out, Major Joss's being among them. with superb courage and coolness he entered another, rallied the remainder of the Squadron and continued to provide invaluable and essential support right on the objective. Throughout these long and tinring actions Major Joss remained calm and completely in control of his Squadron. He was an example to all those around him, both infantry and tank personnel. It was due entirely to his leadership and tirelessness that two strange units finished up with such a complete understanding of each other and obtained such brilliant results against determined opposition.
[Recommended by by Lt.Col. [P.W.D. Hardy??], commanding 48th RTR, approved by Brig. D. Dawnay, commanding 21st Tank Brigade, and finally by Field Marshal Sir Harold R.L.G. Alexander, commanding Allied Force HQ.]
