O'Moore Creagh (DSO): WE St Joh (Yeomanry), DSO 1.1.18 (no citation), Bar 16.8.18: "St John, William Eustace, Major (Temp Lt Col) Yeomanry. For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He was ordered to relieve another unit, which at that time was heavily engaged with the enemy. By his able handling of the situation the relief was successfully accomplished and the fight carried on. During the following days tje enemy made repeated attempts to capture the high ground held by his battalion, but they were driven back on every occasion. His gallantry and example were undoubtedly responsible for the determined resistance made by his battalion."
