gallantry medals at hillah

DCM.
sgt 3512615 john willis

MM.
Cpl 3513379 Richard fairhurst,16 greenough st,wigan
pte 3514344 Edward,james peverley,245 Oldham rd,failsworth
pte 3512659 William boyd
pte 3514074 Daniel Collins
pte 3513875 fred cooper

Collins+cooper.
they continued to load the regimental transport while under fire and helped to carry guns and ammunition to their company,then they joined the men protecting the transport section and helped defend the right flank of the transport in the withdrawal

Cpl fairhurst.
it was greatly due to this NCO that a section of the regimental transport did not break away when charged by cavalry and other horses,he rode up and down the line under heavy fire urging the drivers to keep their places and brought back several animals that had broken away,he was knocked off his horse in the stampede,but managed to bring in most of his vehicles.

sgt willis and ptes boyd and peverley.
during rearguard actions at night,under sgt willis,organised carrying parties of ammo under heavy fire,on one occasion,a party who were covering the right flank,ran short of ammo,their lewis gun being out of action,despite being only 30yds from the enemy,they succeeded on two occasions in bringing up ammo and lewis guns over ground swept with fire,the position was maintained long enough for the regiments transport to get through.
