Lt. John Taylor, 9th Btn. R. Innis. Fus., son of Mrs. Taylor of Galgorm Parks, Ballymena.

" On October 15th 1918, outside the village of Gulleghem, whilst in command of a company, he showed great coolness and initiative. When the advance on the right of his company was checked by heavy fire from enemy machine guns he led two platoons of his company round the left flank, capturing two of the enemy posts and causing the others to withdraw. His gallantry and determined leadership contributed in no small degree to the successful gaining on the objectives.

Ballymena Observer, August 8, 1919.
