Edward's Story

Distinguished Conduct Medal Citation:

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty during a raid on the enemy's trenches. When an enemy machine gun opened fire on the raiding party he at once led his platoon forward, rushed the gun with the bayonet, and put the team to flight. He then turned the gun on to the enemy as they retired. He showed magnificent courage and initiative.
