* Place: East Bengal and North Arakan. Date: May to December 1942. He has commanded 123rd Indian Infantry Brigade since August 1941 with marked success. Before the advance of the Division into the Arakan, he was responsible for organising the defence of Chittagong, which he did most efficiently. Since then his Brigade has led the advance of the Division southwards against all sorts of difficulties and under conditions of considerable discomfort and hardship, and latterly against strong enemy opposition. His able leadership, both on the operational and administrative side, has had marked influence on the campaign, and resulted in a deep advance into territory held by the enemy and the maintenance of the initiative by our forces.
