James Arthur Hopper is on page 215 of John Sheen's book (2nd Edition):

2nd Lieutenant James Arthur Hopper 26th BN for conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. Accompanied by and NCO' date=' he penetrated the enemy's line and brought back most valuable information. He previously carried our most valuable patrol work.


You will see my grandfather on the next page - but his LG report is wrong, so who knows if the above is correct?

Avid follower of the 26th NF.
