[Part of the so-called Bladet commando unit secretly gathering information on enemy troops, was reported killed while storming a Japanese machine-gun nest in Burma. But he had actually crept into the jungle, where he lived off the land until captured and put on the Thai-Burma Death Railway. He led an escape and would have starved to death but for villagers who treated him to pork, which he later found to be the flesh of a Japanese soldier.]

* Recommendation for the appointment as Officer of the Order of the British Empire of Lt.Col. C.B. Macdonald: Since the reconstruction of the Territorial Army after the war Lieutenant-Colonel Macdonald has served continuously in 271 Field Regiment RA (TA). He has commanded the Regiment since 1 Novembor 1957. His service has been distinguished by his power of leadership and his devotion to his duty, to his Regiment and to the Army. A busy man, with his own large and expanding business he has little leisure but is tireless in his efforts for his Regiment, devoting more time to their interests than could reasonably be expected of any TerritoriaI Army officer. He welcomed the challenge of building up the volunteer strength of his Regiment. By his understanding, his personal enthusiasm and relentless efforts, and assisted by the high repute he enjoys in Sheffield, he has recruited young officers of a quality unlikely to be bettered in any Territorial Army regiment. This is the foundation on which he is building his Regiment. His success is reflected in the Regiment's fine spirit and in their determination to make it the best in the Territorial Army. Lieutenant-Colonel Macdonald has given outstanding service to the Territorial Army and justly deserves recognition.

* For conspicuous gallantry during operations, notably when he went out and located a company which had lost its direction, and was hung up by machine-gun fire. He found and reorganised the company, and led it as far as possible towards its objective.
** For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He took command of the battalion at a very critical period, and organised the defence of the position. His personal example and disregard for danger were most marked.
*** When the battalion advanced on the morning of October 10th. 1918. they came under exceptionally heavy shell fire crossing the high ground north-west of Le Cateau. The enemy's guns were firing chiefly over open sights. There were a  large number of casualties, and momentarily the battalion became somewhat disorganised. He at once ran forward, and by his absolute fearlessness and gallant leadership was greatly instrumental in rallying the men and enabling the advance to be resumed. He led one of the front companies until it was reduced to six other ranks, and when the advance was held up, made his way back to battalion Headquarters over 600 yards of open country exposed to snipers, machine-gun fire and shelling, bringing a valuable report.

* Recommendation for the award of the Military Cross to T/Capt. A.R.M. Main: Captain A.R.M. Main is Adjutant of the Regiment under my command. On the evening of 21 April [1945] the head of the Regiment reached Poggio Renatico, when fierce fighting started. By the light of burning buildings it was seen that a towed 150 mm gun and several German vehicles full of infantry were approaching the tail of the column about a mile back. When this was pointed out to Capt. Main he at once got into his tank and drove alone across country in the dark, through an area covered by 88 mm guns and destroyed the whole enemy column at point blank range thus securing the tail of the Regimental column from further interference. His tank was then engaged by bazookas and hand grenades and he himself received a painful wound in the face. In spite of this he continued to carry out his duties for a further 36 hours although hardly able to speak, until his relief arrived. This officers' prompt and courageous action and subsequent devotion to duty in a period of great strain contributed very largely to the success of the operation.
[Recommended by 26.04.1945 by Lt.Col. R.L.V. ffrench Blake, commanding 17th/21st Lancers, approved 01.05.1945 by Brig. F.N. Mitchell, commanding 26th Armoured Brigade, 06.05.1945 by Maj.Gen. H. Murray, commanding 6th Armoured Division, 14.05.1945 by Lt.Gen. C.F. Keightley, commanding 5 Corps, 18.05.1945 by Lt.Gen. R.L. McCreery, commanding 8th Army, and finally 20.05.1945 by Field Marshal Sir Harold R.L.G. Alexander, commanding Allied Force HQ.]
