Llvesay, Canadian Press Corregpondont). With tile Canadian Forces, Aug., 24. -Hecommendatlons tor Oio yictoria Cross Include that of a sergeant In a Sttskatchowan battalion as follows: "^or most conspicuous gallantry �nd-dovotlOn to duty during an attack made on. the enemy's positions on August 9. ':Thl8 N.C.O. with hlB platoon, was protecting tlio battalion's right flank, 'lie was leading the platoon gallantly forward to tho attack b\it had not Bono far wholi' liti roalizod that a gap liad occurred In his flank and that an enemy machlno gun was firing at close ran'ge at tho advancing lino. Ito Im-modlately grasped tho situation and rushed forward about 200 yards ahead of the platoon, tackled  the machine gun emplacement, killing the officer and wounding one of the crew, the rest boating a hasty retreat. By his boldness and quick action ho un-doubtfldly saved ttie lives of many of his oomrados.- Thrmighout the day ho exhibited the same spirit, carrying on after belngwoundod by aliell fire." TWO More' Instances. Another battalion has tho distinction, of two recommendations for tho Victoria Cross. A private, later killed In action, encountered on August 8, after being Bepe'ratod from his section, a machino .gun nest in a wood which he dealt VfXth unassisted, first by bombing ji'nd tlieo, Jumping into tho i)6st,'.teklhg tho crew and gun prisonel's. Shortly after he-was sev-oroly wouhdpd 'in the tight arm, but refused to desist. Shortly after he Jod his platopn In a brilliant charge against a very strong point containing .fioyoral machine guns which wore captufed, tho garrison being bayon-ettcd Of .surrendering. Me was severely, wounded in the kneo and died in a jf�w minutes. His persevoranco . and' courage were undoubtedly re-' sponsible . for .faking , tho strongest polrit in the whole day's advance. A corporal in the same battnllon is recommended for "single-handed capturing o� a- strong post with threo machlno guns, which was enfilading Ills company, kllllnB several of the garrison and capturing the'romainder. Later on, '!ie,whli6 aTone, encountered tho battery of 5.9 Inch guns in action. CoUooting threo men of his section, he charged the battery and captured the entire crows of the throe guns, which continued to fire poiht blank at them until the � four men wore on them." Heroic Act, A corporal, a gunner in an armored motor machine oar, pertormod an heroic act, In which ho lost his life. An enemy gun made a iltrept hit on. the car.'TcllllnB three of "the craw and cut- ting oft Hie corporal's arm. Remor-. Ing the body of the driver, he swung round tlio shattered car and brought it safely back to our linos. French-Canafllan Valour A lieutenant of a celebrated French Canadian battalion, since dead. Is recommended for the Victoria Cross, In tho fQlIowing terms: "For tho most conspicuous gallantry and almost sutwrhuman devotion to duty during tho operations of August 8 and 0. He was In charge of a company which led during tho two days with absolute fearlessness and extraordinary ability and initiative. "About ono o'clock In the afternoon of August 9, Just after that day's attack had begun, his company's left flank was held up by an enemy machine guri. Ho fUshed In and captured tho gun, personally killing two of the nmchlne gun crew. While doing this ho was woimded in the thigh, but refused to be removed. A little after throe o'clock the samo day his company was hold up by heavy machine gun fire from a machlno gun nest In a group of houses. Ho personally reccnnoltored tho ground and organized a party of two platoons and rashort straight fqr the machlno gun nest. Hero 150 Germans and 15 machlno guns wore captured. The lieu tonant personally killed five OcrHians and being wounded a second time, now in the flhoulder which ho had immediately dressed again refused to be evacuated. About si.x o'clock in tho c'vontng of the same day ho saw a field gun" firing on bis men with open sights from a neighboring wood. He Immediately organized and led a rushing party toward the gun. After progressing about flOO yards ho was seriously wounded In tRe abdomen. In spite of this third wound, he continued to advance some 200 yards .when ho fell unconscious from oxhaustlon and loss of blood. His wonderful example throughout tho day fired his men with an enthusiasm and fury which largely contributed' toward the JJattalion's noble achlovementB." Seven other recommendations are made in connection with the same battalion, the heroes of Co'urcelettes.
