Despite extremely-heiavy m-*-chine gun fire and t^e propinquity of the enemy. West rallied the men who had lost their officers and hastily issued orders. West then rode ap and down in front of them in the face of pertain death, encouraging the men and calling on them: "Stick to it, iiienj show them fight; arid for" God's sakfi put up a good fight," He fell riddled with machine gun .bullets. His magnificent bravery inspired the infantry to redouble their efforts and the hostile attack was defeated.' Another member of. the tank corps,-Lieut. C. Howell, showed equal reckless regard for his personal' safety. When commanding the whippet light; tanks he left the tank and crossed open ground under heavy shell fire and machine gun fire in order to rescue the crew of another.;Tyhippet which had sideslipped into a.large shell hole and had overturned and was on fire. The taiilc door was Jammed against the side ot the shellhole. Howell, unaided, dug a way through the entrance of the door and released the crew, thereby saving them from "^Lcertain death. Lieut. Howell, later on the same occasion was hit while rescuing a'wounded man under murderous fire. He -^as eventually killed the i^sme day while attending to other wounded men. The description is also published of five exploits by one recipient, namely. Chief Petty Officer George Prowae of the naval service.
