Comments: The story and World War One diary transcripts of Lieutenant John William Searcy MC of the 10th Battalion.
His Military Cross citation:
‘In the operations near Jeancourt on 18th September 1918, he was responsible for the direction of the battalion. In order to successfully fulfil his task under very difficult circumstances he fearlessly exposed himself, advancing up to and across our barrage frequently in order to correct direction. His gallantry was an inspiration to all who saw him, and contributed largely to the moral which carried so few men so long a distance.’
