10870 SUPPLEMENT TO THE LONDON GAZETTE, 16 SEPTEMBER, 1918.

T. /Capt. William Moss., Linc. R.

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion- to

duty. In an attack on a trench this officer

organised and directed the whole of the mopping

up. On reaching the second objective,

he directed operations skilfully and with

coolness under (heavy fire, maintaining communications

with the rear. Although

counter-attacked more> than once, he held on

until his supply of bombs gave out and his

rifles were clogged with mud, when he carried

out the withdrawal in a very able

manner. Over 100 prisoners and three

machine-guns were brought back, twenty-two

machine-guns being destroyed, and no fewer

than eighty dead being counted an one

trench. He did splendid work.
