Temp. 2nd Lt. Charles Harold Traill, V/20 Trench Mortar Battery, R.F.A. For conspicuous gallantry. He skilfully cut the enemy’s wire by his fire preparatory to a raid, and during the raid, kept two of his guns in action under shell fire after the third gun had been buried. He himself went from gun to gun with the utmost coolness and set a fine example to all under him. He had previously been brought to notice for gallant work. Supplement to the London Gazette 27 July 1916.
