* For conspicuous gallantry throughout the day on September 19th,1918, during the attack on the Turkish position about Tabsor, and especially after passing through the last objective into open country. Collecting various details of four different units up to a total af about 80 men, he organised them into parties, charged in face of strong opposition, and took two trenches, capturing about 50 prisoners and two field guns. Subsequently, when mounted on a captured pony, he saw a third field gun escaping, whereupon he galloped after it and, single-handed, captured the gun and team complete. He set a magnificent example to all units by his initiative and utter disregard of danger.

His son writes: "I would just mention that there is no doubt that my father held the rank of Captain (presumably "War Substantive") as he (explained to me in later years ) was automatically promoted to that rank upon his appointment as Regimental Adjutant. Throughout my youth he received "official" communications from "Colonial" sources and the Royal Overseas Club (?) addressed to "Capt. A.G. Robertson". I may say that he subsequently had command of "Force Ferret" during the Malayan Emergency (where he normally was employed in H.M. Customs attaining the senior rank of Assistant Controller) and as a consequence had, during those operations of engaging communist Chinese forces in the jungle, the substantive rank of Lt.Col."
