SUPPLEMENT TO THE LONDON GAZETTE, 16 SEPTEMBER, 1918

T./Lt. (A./Capt.) Reginald Edward Bennett,

R.F.A.

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to

duty. At the commencement of an enemy

attack this officer's battery was completely

neutralised by the enemy, so he limbered up

under heavy shell fire and moved his

howitzers 400 yards to a flank nearer the

enemy, coming into action with open sights,

and remaining there till dark. He has many

times shown similar resource and energy
