Tom Morgan Posted 23 October , 2013 Share Posted 23 October , 2013 In his last letter home to his mother, Donald Bell V. C. wrote as follows (text taken from a printed book); When the battalion went over, I with my team crawled up a communication trench and attacked the gun and trench and I hit the gun first shot from about 20 yards and knocked it over. The G.C.C. has been over to congratulate the battalion and he personally thanked me. I must confess it was the biggest fluke alive and I did nothing. I only chucked one bomb but it did the trick. The C.C. says I saved the situation for this gun was doing all the damage. Would anyone know what the abbreviations G.C.C. and C.C. mean? I must admit I have an idea, but I'd like to see if anyone comes up with the same explanation so won't mention it unless someone else does.
