A Capt Thurlow is mentioned in the WD of 16 Div AC (Ancestry Various Divisional Troops - 16 Div) on 07/06/1917 but not for an act of bravery as far as I could see. The AC suffered some casualties delivering to D/177. Nothing in the WD of 177 Brigade, the CRA 16 Div or A&QMG 16 Div.

TLLT tells us that the original DAC left in 1915 to join the Guards Div and a new DAC joined on 22/02/1916. Some pages in the June 1917 WD of the DAC are stamped 16th (East Ham) Div AC. I suppose there were countless acts of bravery on that day which were not recorded.
