* Recommendation for the award of an immediate Military Cross to T/Maj. P.S. Taylor:  Major P.S. Taylor commands "B" Squadron of this Regiment. On 21 April "B" Squadron was ordered as leading Squadron of the Regiment to force a way through the gap at Segni.This involved passing across a small 'bare' island which was known to be covered on one side by at least to enemy tanks and one anti-tank gun and on the other by infantry positions on a high levee. The exit from the island was over a very narrow neck of land blocked by a bank which was an anti-tank obstacle. Major Taylor's Squadron moved on to the island under a tremendous concentration from enemy artillery and Nebelwerfers, covered by a smoke screen from our own guns. The leading troop could not at first cross the obstacle and the smoke screen lifted. Major Taylor's own tank became bogged and his rear link and one other tank was knocked out. He dismounted under heavy fire and changed tanks continuing with great skill to direct his Squadron and himself to do rear links. His clear information enabled the assault Royal Engineers to start making a breach in the obstacle, while he so skilfully disposed his Squadron so that the enemy tanks were driven off. The breach was made and the whole force passed through unmolested. "B" Squadron then fought their way forward for three miles through close and difficult country, destroying over overcoming many infantry positions and keeping off a constant threat from a Panther tank on the flank. The result of this skilful and very difficult operation was the capture intact of the vital Chianti Bridge at Gallo. On the previous day "B" Squadron fought with the same skill and determination south of the Fossa Cembalina, destroying two enemy anti-tank guns, capturing an enemy tank and taking many prisoners. Major Taylor's calm skilful and courageous leadership throughout was the direct cause of the success of this vital operation.
[Recommended by 09.05.1945 by Lt.Col. R.L.V. ffrench Blake, commanding 17th/21st Lancers, approved 10.05.1945 by Brig. F.N. Mitchell, commanding 26th Armoured Brigade, 14.05.1945 by Maj.Gen. H. Murray, commanding 6th Armoured Division, 18.05.1945 by Lt.Gen. C.F. Keightley, commanding 5 Corps, 24.05.1945 by Lt.Gen. R.L. McCreery, commanding 8th Army, and finally 27.05.1945 by Field Marshal Sir Harold R.L.G. Alexander, commanding Allied Force HQ.]

* For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. When his battery was being relieved the position was shelled by an intense bombardment, which lasted for over two hours and caused many casualties in Loth batteries. The pits and ammunition of one section caught fire, and he succeeded in extinguishing this. Later, the telephone pit and mess shelter were wrecked, and he immediately led the way to the rescue of wounded men inside. The camouflage nets of three more guns were then set alight, and the ammunition began to catch fire. This he also saved by tearing down the burning camouflage and smothering the smouldering ammunition, some of which had already begun to explode. Not until all the fires had been extinguished, and he had seen every man, both wounded and unwounded, clear of the position, did he seek cover for himself. His great gallantry and exceptional coolness throughout the whole of this time were worthy of the highest praise.

* Recommendation for the award of the Distinguished Service Order to Lt.Col. W.B. Thomas: Major (Ty Lt.Col.) William Bain Thomas, The Cameronians (Scottish Rifles), was placed in command of a mixed force of which his own battalion was the only regular unit at Magwe on April 14 [1942]. This force was detailed to act as rearguard to the remainder of the Division during its withdrawal towards the Yin Chaung. Lt.Col. Thomas' handling of this force in face of enemy opposition was of the highest order. Again on April 18 with this same improvised force Lt.Col. Thomas attacked a hill near Nyaunghla (yenangyaung) and penetrated well past his first objective and thereby opened up the bye-pass road for the use of transport. The success of this small force was in the main due to the personal courage and example of Lt.Col. Thomas, who throughout the operation was in the front line, encouraging those who wavered and carrying out personal reconnaissances under artillery, mortar and machine-gun fire. This magnificent example undoubtedly had a great effect on the morale of the troops who responded splendidly. Next day on 19th April Lt.Col. Thomas, when in command of his own battalion, moved forward with his unit, quite unsupported, and occupied some high ground, the retention of which was vital to cover the passage of motor transport. This was successfully carried out in spite of heavy enemy opposition and the bulk of the motor transport was thereby able to pass unmolested. The magnificent fighting spirit which prevails in the Cameronians can very largely be attributed to the personality and devotion to duty of its present commander.
[Recommended 03.06.1942 by Maj.Gen. J.B. Scott, commanding 1st Burma Division, approved 21.06.1942 by Gen. H.R.L.G. Alexander, General Officer Commanding Burma.]

* Recommendation for the award of an immediate Military Cross to WS/Lt. G.L. Thorburn:  On 19 April 1945 Lt. G.L. Thorburn was Troop Leader of the leading Troop of B Squadron 16/5 Lancers who, with B Company 1 King's Royal Rifle Corps, had been ordered to force a crossing of the canal Po Morte di Primaro as quickly as possible. The canal was known to be strongly held by enemy infantry and self-propelled guns nad it was a tank obstacle. On nearing the objective, the advance was held up by heavy small arms fire and armour-piercing [projectiles] from enemy who were holding an unexpected line along a levee and some houses across the axis of advance. There was also heavy enemy shelling which was causing casualties amongst the infantry with Lt. G.L. Thorburn, including the Platoon Commander, who was killed. Lt. G.L. Thorburn immediately advanced in his tank and at close range destroyed the enemy in the two houses most strongly held. He then passed between these two houses to within 50 yards of the levee which was in itself a strong position. He then attacked this position with such vigour that the enemy got up and ran and he able to get his Troop on to the far side of the levee where he found and destroyed, on his own initiative, three more enemy strong points, thus turning the whole position and allowing the advance to continue ....

* Recommendation for the award of the Croix de Guerre with Silver Stars to WS/Lt. C.E. Tonry: During the whole period in which his Brigade has been in action since the landings in Normandy this officer, by his energy, self-discipline, gallantry, devotion to duty, and complete disregard of personal safety, has shown a fine example to all ranks. He has always accompanied his line detachments on difficult or dangerous missions and when casualties occurred, he himself always took over until a relief could be obtained.
[Recommended 15.12.1944 by Lt.Col. Commanding Royal Signals, 11th Armoured Division, approved 21.12.1944 by Maj.Gen. G.P.B. Roberts, Commanding 11th Armoured Division, 24.12.1944 by Lt.Gen. General Officer Commanding 8 Corps, and 18.01.1945 by Lt.Gen. M.C. Dempsey, General Officer Commanding-in-Chief, 2nd Army.] [Citation courtesy of Mr Robin Clay]

His nephew Mr Derek W. Ewen writes: "I contacted my cousin re our uncle, and his memory is as follows--- After our uncle's officer training he was sent to the Artillery, thinks he served them in some coastal defence capacity. He later applied for a transfer to the Scots Guards. My cousin remembers our uncle being in the Barracks in London for a time. After that he was aware of our uncle being in the Middle East, serving in Eritrea with the military administration, who were there after the country was taken over from Italian control. After that he was in Greece again as part of the military administration, just at the time that the communists were trying to take over the country after the Germans had departed. My cousin's memory is that by the time our uncle left the army he was a Lt Col."
