* Captain Sandys has served as Quartermaster of 1st Battalion The Hertfordshire Regiment since the outbreak of war with exceptional ability and devotion to duty. On three occasions during the course of the war he has shown outstanding powers of organisation and ability to overcome abnormal difficulty. When his Battalion was embodied at the beginning of the war Captain Sandys was almost entirely responsible for the rapid and efficient equipping and mobilising of the Unit. In the summer of 1940 the Unit was in particularly difficult circumstances in that all types of personal and public equipment were taken on charge, issued and twice called in for re-issue to Regular Units which had returned from France. During this time also personnel were continually drafted overseas. In spite of these difficulties and discouragements Captain Sandys performed his duties with quite outstanding skill. In 1943-1944 the Unit was stationed at Gibraltar. Conditions were peculiar in that the Unit maintained on ledger charge many kinds of additional siege equipment and at the same time was responsible for equipping and maintaining a number of attached sub-units. The ration strength of this Unit was 50% above War Establishment. For fifteen months Captain Sandys showed the utmost diligence and outstanding powers of organisation in undertaking duties greatly in excess of those normal for a Unit Quartermaster without increase of staff or other outside assistance. In Italy from September 1944 to January 1945 the Unit was engaged in active operations in mountainous country under appalling weather conditions. Administrative resources were straind to the utmost. The Unit lines of communications varied between a twenty mile mule train over difficult tracks and a sixty mile motor transport drive over roads made almost impassable by mud or snow. During this period Captain Sandys never failed to meet any demand made on him by forward troops. When the weather was at its worst he personally made the twelve hour round trip from the Unit B-Echelon to Unit Rear Headquarters once every forty-eight hours and always reported by telephone or in person to his Commanding Officer. Throughout the whole period he showed the most outstanding endurance, determination and devotion to duty. Captain Sandys enlisted in 1914 at the age of 16 and has served continuously since that date. He was wounded in Mesopotamia in 1917.

* Recommendation for the award of the Distinguished Service Order to T/Lt.Col. H.W.B. Saunders: In the late afternoon of 3 Nov [1942] an attack in co-operation with tanks was launched on an enemy locality about Tel El Aqqiqira. This locality was supposed to be in our hands or lightly held and the attack was carried out only under cover of smoke in consequence. Soon after the attack was launched our tanks came under intense and accurate anti-tank fire while the Battalion ran into several machine gun nests, thus causing severe casualties both in tanks and men and bringing the attack to a standstill. The wireless sets in both the leading companies were hit and put out of action and all runners trying to reach Battalion Headquarters became casualties. Fully realising the situation, Col. Saunders at once personally went forward on foot to his leading companies. He re-organised the left one which had lost all its officers. He then went across to the right one, during all which time both tanks and infantry were pinned to their ground by heavy enemy fire. By his courageous action he steadied the Battalion and enabled it to hold the ground won by getting his men to dig in where they lay. Throughout the whole action Col. Saunders displayed leadership of the highest order, showing a complete disregard for danger and setting a fine example to his command. To his personal example and determination the partial success of the Battalion was largely due.

* Recommendation for the award of the Military Cross to WS/Lt. I.R. Saunders: On the morning of 17th April 1945, Lieutenant Saunders, The Queens Bays, was in command of a troop of tanks supporting "D" Company, 1st Battalion The Royal Irish Fusiliers (Princess Victoria's). The task allotted to this force was the enlargement of, and exploitation from, the small bridgehead over the Marina Canal - an area dominated by enemy tanks and assault guns. Two out of the four of the tanks supporting the Companies which had secured the original bridgehead had been knocked out and any movement drew immediate fire. Despite this adverse state of affairs, this officer manoeuvred his troops into fire positions from which he harassed the enemy all day, knocking out at least two enemy tanks and killing a number of infantry, causing others to surrender. During this time every one of the tanks under his command was hit at least once by a solid shot. There is no doubt, that but for his courage, skill and determination, not one of his tanks would have arrived intact on the objective, thereby leaving the infantry open to an extremely probable counter-attack. His advance under fire from tanks and assault guns for a distance of fifteen hundred yards enabled the infantry to carry out their appointed task with every success and resulted in the final break through of the defences of the Argenta Gap. Lieutenant Saunders' personal bearing was an inspiration, not only to his own men, but also to the infantry which his troop was supporting.

Went to St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada in 1954 as a physician and an anaesthetist at the St. Thomas-Elgin General Hospital.
* Recommendation for the award of the Military Cross to WS/Lt. G.M. Scott: On the 18th April 1945 Lieut. Scott, with his Troop, was supporting a Company of the 24th Guards Brigade during the advance through Chiesa el Bando. When the advance was held up by an enemy minefield Lieut. Scott went out on foot to reconnoitre a path through the minefield; throughout his recce he was subjected to intense mortar and shell fire. On completion of his task Lieut. Scott was returning to his tank when he was wounded by a mortar shell.Although in great pain, from a serious wound, and losing a large amount of blood, he had the presence of mind and singleness of purpose, to pass on the information he had gained on his recce to his Troop Sergeant. This information proved invaluable, and as a result of it the Squadron was able to continue the advance and assist the Infantry in clearing the village. Lieut. Scott has always shown great coolness and courage in previous actions.

03.1945 - 10.1946 served in NW Europe
* Recommendation for the award of the immediate Military Cross to 2nd Lt. E. Shaw: 2/Lt. E. Shaw was in command of No. 8 Platoon 4th Battalion The East Yorkshire Regiment on the night of 20/21 March, 1942. He fought for and gained a footing on the Ras El Eleba, in spite of the fact that the feature was held by a company of the 155th Lorried Infantry Regiment, supported by at least 4 machine guns, 2 anti-tank guns and one medium mortar. He led his platoon with cool determination, capturing an officer, 4 other ranks and one machine gun and inflicting several casualties on the enemy. Eventually the platoon depleted by casualties was driven off the feature by a counter attack of at least fifty men. He did not leave until he made certain that all his men had withdrawn less one too seriously wounded to move. He himself covered the withdrawal of his Platoon. The action throughout of this young officer in his first engagement was most praiseworthy and definitely was of the highest standard.
[Recommended 25.03.1942 by Brig. C.W. Haydon, commanding 150th Infantry Brigade, approved 29.03.1942 by Maj.Gen. W.H.C. Ramsden, commanding 50th (Northumbrian) Infantry Division, 02.04.1942 by Lt.Gen. W.H.E. Gott, commanding 13 Corps, 11.02.1942 by Lt.Gen. N.M.  Ritchie, commanding 8th Army, and by Gen. C.J.E.

* For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty.  When under heavy shell fire with his battery he entered a burning building and removed a number of cartridges which were on the point of being exploded by the burning debris. By this prompt and gallant action he undoubtedly saved much material as well as considerable damage to the guns.
** On 24th October, 1918, near Bousies, in charge of his battery, he was ordered to get a section in action sufficiently far forward to shoot on an: important railway junction. Despite heavy enemy shelling and several casualties during the night 24th/25th October, his guns were in action by 4 p.m. on 25th October, and made excellent practice on the junction. Throughout the operation he displayed courage and sound judgment, and completed his task satisfactorily.
