Next of Kin: Amott, A, Mrs, mother, 217 Union Rd, Ascot Vale    

Enlisted: 26 Jul 1915        

Embarkation: A15 Port Sydney 7 Sep 1916

Awards:  Military Medal

 

Recommendation  for Military Medal 8-10-17

On 26-9-17  this man was on duty with other bearers at HALFWAY HOUSE.  Shelling was at the time very heavy when some casualties occurred about 200 yards from the medical dugout.  Without hesitation with Private White* he picked up a stretcher and went to the assistance of the wounded man, assisted him and brought him in.  This man's previous work as a bearer has been very plucky and consistently good.
