Spr T.W. Aikins
WW1
12 December 1917
For conspicuous bravery and devotion to duty. In the attack on Aug: 15th 1917, Signaller Aikins acted as linesman. The lines from the old front line forward were broken time and time again, but in spite of the apparent hopelessness of the task, he worked at repairing the line with entire disregard of danger, and dogged determination, under heavy shelling, machine gun and rifle fire. His admirable work assisted in establishing communication from time to time, and provided a means for sending messages of the utmost importance to Artillery control, thereby contributing towards the success of the operation on this part of the front.

Cpl T.E. Anderson
WW2
10 November 1945
On 18 November 1944, Corporal Anderson was put in charge of a wireless detachment at a traffic control post at the southwest end of the NIJMEGEN bridge, which was under enemy observations and intermittent shell fire. This bridge was on the main supply route to the formations of the island, and heavy traffic had to be cleared over the bridge with a minimum of delay to keep down vehicle and personnel casualties and congestion. On 23 November 1944, shellfire tore several large holes in the wireless vehicle. On 24 November, Corporal Anderson's driver was taken off the detachment suffering from battle exhaustion. On 25 November, the company commander visited the detachment and found the men in excellent spirits, but, while standing by the vehicle, the company commander, his driver, and the operator on the set were all wounded by airburst. Corporal Anderson took over without hesitation, and shortly afterwards, when visited by his section officer was most insistent that he remain there until the job was finished. His detachment personnel and vehilcle were changed, but he stayed on during two weeks of intermittent shellfire directed onto the immediate area. His enthusiasm for doing a real job, his sense of leadership and disregard for personal danger, inspired his detachment so successfully that during its entire employment at this post, communications were interrupted only once, and that was due to shrapnel damaging the wireless equipment. Corporal Anderson landed in Normany July 1944 as a wireless detachment commander with this unit, and served as such throughout the campaigne in North West Europe. During the advances through France and Belgium, he was an outstanding detachment commander, both as a soldier and as a technician. He was always at his best under adverse conditions, and the confidence which he inspired in his men never failed to carry them through to successful completion of their duties.

For conspicuous bravery, endurance and devotion to duty between the 8th and 12th August 1918 in the Area occupied by the 4th Canadian Division.

This N.C.O. was in charge of the Divisional Wireless Section and the success of Wireless communications in this Division since Zero on the 8th inst., to the 12th inst., has been to a large extent, due to the splendid work and example of this N.C.O. in keeping up Wireless communication when other methods had temporarilly failed.

At all times since Zero on the 8th inst., when forward stations have given trouble, this N.C.O. has gone forward to make the necessary repairs in spite of almost insurmountable difficulties of enemy shelling and bombing. (War Diary, 4th Divisional Signal Company, 30 September 1918)

Lance-Corporal Bagg was in charge of a relay station of four men from 14-17 August 1917, keeping up a line through a bad section of trench, on which the enemy put a frequent barrage, and where there were many casualties, and although it was frequently broken, this Brigade was seldom out of communication for long, owing to Lance-Corporal Bagg’s energy and devotion to duty.

WW1
2 November 1917
For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty on August 15th-22nd 1917. Spr Ballard was in charge of the Brigade Linesmen and was wounded by shrapnel during the first day of the attack. He insisted on remaining on duty, however, although his wound had to be dressed daily. On account of heavy casualties among the Brigade Linesmen he carried on his work with inexperienced men and maintaining the lines with great difficulty under heavy and almost incessant shell fire. On the last do of the tour he was evacuated to hospital, much against his will, as poisoning had set in the arm and shoulder as a result of the wound. [2nd Canadian Divisional Signals (Hill 70)]

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty from the 7th to 11th August, 1918, especially near MEHARICOURT - ROSIERS (Sheet F.16.a.)

From the 7th to the 11th of August 1918, this N.C.O. displayed conspicuous courage and initiative in laying and maintaining telephone lines.

Throughout the period mentioned, his conduct was a fine example to the men, under very trying conditions.

On the 11th, after working with practically no sleep for 3 days, he took charge of a Cable detachment, the N.C.O. in charge having been killed, and laid a line to Brigade Headquarters through MEHARICOURT under shell fire and bombing and machine gun fire from aeroplanes, and established communications.

For great gallantry and devotion to duty at FARBUS during the operations of May 3rd when he was in charge of the Brigade linesmen. Brigade Hqrs and the Batteries were continuously shelled, but this N.C.O. by his fearless example and splendid control of his men, kept up continuous communications despite the fact that the Headquarters Signalling Party were driven out of their Signal dugout by shell fire a few hours before the attack. When Division line was out, two hours before Zero, Cpl Buck went out personally with the Division Linesman to fix the break on the ridge, which was being heavily shelled, and succeeded in altering course and repairing line so that it held for the operation.

For the utmost gallantry, devotion to duty and determination. On the morning of the 6th instant immediately after the attack on PASSCHENDAELE, Bdr CHURCHILL set out to establish a continuous Wave Wireless Station on PASSCHENDAELE. The need of this station was imperative as Wireless was the only means of rapid communication for the H.A. and F.A. F.O.Os. Heavily laden with Wireless instruments etc., this Bdr continued for almost 4 miles in the face of very heavy enemy shell and machine gun fire. The station was successfully established about 100 yards behind our line and in full view of the enemy. Bdr CHURCHILL did heroic work in frequently erecting the aerial which was being shot away, and in maintaining until relieved 48 hours later.

On the 25 and 26 April 1945 the guns of the 8 Canadian Field Regiment (Self-Propelled) were deployed near WIRDUM in support of the attack on the DELFZIJL pocket. During this time the whole regimental area was subjected continually to intense enemy shelling with the result that vital line communications were being repeatedly cut. The task of Lance Corporal DAVIS was to maintain these communications at all costs. Working day and night for 48 hours with little or no sleep and complete disregard for enemy shelling Lance Corporal DAVIS repaired and maintained approximately 3 miles of existing cables and in addition personally supervised the laying of a supplementary cable, a distance of 2 miles, over difficult country. Lance Corporal DAVIS realized that if line communications were not kept open the full support of the regiment would not be available for our forward troops, and when three members of his party became casualties he re-doubled his efforts, going personally to effect repairs perticularly in the places where the shelling was heaviest. It was in not small degree due to the courage and initiative of this soldier, who carried out a hazardous and trying task with great gallantry, that the full fire support of the regiment was immediately available throughout the action to our forward troops.

Sicily: On the evening of 22 Jul 43 the enemy heavily shelled our position at Linertina. Sigmn Dehler was on duty as operator of the 22 wireless set working to Bde. The wireless vehicle containing the set was in a small wood. Enemy shells began falling close to the vehicle, on about 30 feet in front and one about 15 feet in rear. Fires broke out. Then an ammunition truck about 20 yards from the wireless vehicle caught fire and A. Tank shells and other ammunition began to explode. While this was going on another enemy shell dropped about 6 or 7 feet in front of the wireless vehicle and other fires started nearby. Shelling in the immediate vicinity lasted about an hour. All personnel in the vicinity of the wireless vehicle took cover at the beginning of the shelling and, except when required to leave cover to perform duties, remained under cover while the shelling lasted. Sigmn Dehler might have taken cover or lain down beside his vehicle at least for short periods, however her remained at his set in a very exposed position throughout the shelling and maintained communication with Bde H.Q. He showed great devotion to duty and disregard for his own safety.

On the night of 31st October / 1st November 1918 previous to the attack he was called upon to work under extremely difficult conditions in an area which was being heavily shelled with gas. He gave a fine example of personal bravery, and again on 1st November remained at duty during the day, repaired lines which were being repeatedly cut by enemy shell fire. He showed an utter disregard for his personal safety and though exposed to extremely heavy shell fire and accurate machine gun fire during the day he stuck to his post, and as a consequence of his efforts, communication was maintained at a time of extreme importance. His example to his comrades was most inspiring.

Corporal Edwards is responsible for the laying and maintenance of regimental line communications. He has always shown great courage and perseverance in the carrying out of his duties, often under heavy fire. In the LIRI VALLEY operations 8 Canadian Field Regiment (Self-Propelled) was continuously moving forward in close support of armoured units. Maintenance of line communications was vital and most difficult due both to enemy shell fire and to the manoeuvering of our own tanks. On 24 and 25 May 1944 this non-Commissioned Officer was continuously out laying and repairing cable, often under very heavy fire and with no respite or rest. Due to his courage and initiative, line was never cut long enough to cause a reduction of fire support. On the night of 5 September 1944, subsequent to the breakthrough the GOTHIC LINE, the regiment was deployed near MISANO. During the night, the gun area was subjected to concentrated enemy shell fire and continued bombing and strafing attacks by enemy aircraft. Many casualties to personnel were suffered and considerable equipment destroyed. Throughout the night, signal lines were continually being out by shell fire and bombing. Completely disregarding the shells and bombs, Corporal Edwards repaired lines throughout the night and by his courageous actions communications were maintained. Corporal Edward's service has been marked by gallantry, courage and initiative. Due to his personal effort, vital regimental line communications have never failed. His distinguished conduct and devotion to duty are an example to all ranks. [5th Canadian Armoured Divisional Signals]

WW2
12 July 1945
During November and December 1944 and January 1945 this NCO has shown exemplary devotion to duty and initiative in overcoming technical difficulties whilst in command of isolated wireless detachments. In particular, Corporal Feig showed praiseworthy leadership whilst in charge of the rear link wireless detachment at HQ 4 Commando Brigade during the seaborne assault on WALCHEREN ISLAND 1 November 1944. This detachment manned a wireless set specially installed in an LVT which disembarked from an LCT on the WEST KAPPELLE Beach at H-plus-1 Hour. Enemy shelling was heavy during the approach to the beach and the LVT was hit by fragments from a nearby burst but communication was re-opened immediately after landing. Brigade Headquarters was established in a blockhouse, but since the wireless set could NOT be removed from its vehicle, the LVT carrying Corporal Feig's detachment was forced to remain on open ground where it was subjected to fire from artillery, mortars and machine guns. For two days Corporal Feig's detachment remained in this position, after which they spent three days in the village of WEST KAPPELLE where only occasional shelling was experienced. Wireless traffic was fairly heavy and the detachment, in addition to its expected task, was required to pass messages over a forward net on a different frequency using the same wireless set. During the entire five days, communication was interrupted only twice -- once for fifteen minutes when the LVT was hit, and once for thirty minutes when exploding ammunition from a nearby burning vehicle was falling in and around the wireless LVT. During the difficult first two days of the landing, Corporal Feig remained continuously with his detachment. By his steadiness he ensured that messages were passed forward as necessary, as well as backward over the rear link, thus maintaining communications which were vital to the success of the operation.

Reference Map Italy 1/100,000 Sheet 160 Cassino. On 23 May 1944, 1 Canadian Division attacked and broke through the strong enemy defences of the Adolf Hitler Line. 4 Canadian Reconnaissance Regt (4 Princess Louise Dragoon Guards) pushed forward along the road leading west from Pontecorvo (MR 7217) in order to keep contact with the enemy. B-34626 Lance Corporal Alfred Adrian Ferris of 1 Canadian Divisional Signals was detailed to build a line along this route as rapidly as possible. As part of the line had to be laid through a minefield the signals detachment would normally have waited for an engineer reconnaissance party to move forward with it. No sappers were readily available so without hesitation this Non Commissioned Officer led his detachment forward on their own. Lance Corporal Ferris laid the cable through the minefield and up the road. By this time enemy artillery and snipers were making the task of the signallers all the more difficult. This Non Commissioned Officer resolutely pushed on showing great initiative and complete disregard for his own safety. His efforts were successful, for the time the headquarters of the Reconnaissance Regiment arrived at the selected site, the line to Main Divisional Headquarters (MR 751143) was laid and waiting. Largely due to Lance Corporal Ferris' bravery and determined performance of duty, efficient communication for the pursuit had been provided.

This necessitated a walk of 4 1/2 miles through very heavy shell fire, demanding great determination. he gave every possible assistance to the wireless detachment in the erection of the station, and when the wireless aerial was blown down and messages had to be sent these pigeons proved invaluable. This NCO remained at this point for 4 days without sleep and in his spare time he gave great assistance to the stretcher bearers in carrying in wounded and attending to same.

Sergeant JOHNS has been attached to 3 Canadian Armoured Reconnaissance Regiment (Governor General's Horse Guards) for the past eighteen months in command of 'R' Troop Signals 5 Canadian Armoured Division. He has displayed excellent qualities of a Non Commissioned Officer and in the exercise of his duties has shown outstanding ability and leadership. By the enthusiastic spirit of this Non Commissioned Officer it is evident that he has at heart not only the interestes of his own troop but of the Regiment as a whole. In October 1944 the Governor General's undertook a dismounted role for the push from BELARIA to RAVENNA. The complex system of line communications required for this role appeared impossible from the resources within the Regiment. Sergeant JOHNS immediately undertook to assemble the necessary equipment to provide signal converage for this extremely difficult change-over. Working at high speed Sergeant JOHNS and his detachment accomplished the task and when the regiment went into action, complete wireless and line communications were available. Throughout the long operation this outstanding Non Commissioned officer inspired his men to such a degree that maintenance and repair of signal cables were of the highest order. The initiative and devotion to duty displayed by Sergeant JOHNS have materially contributed to the brilliant success of the operation. In April 1945, South or DREEL, HOLLAND, Sergeant JOHNS again distinguished himself. "B" Echelon had just harboured for the night when word was received that a force of approximately 200 of the enemy were forming up to attack the position. Without hesitation Sergeant JOHNS organized a cable laying party from men available and quickly established communications from the command post to each outpost. Sergeant JOHNS personally undertook to lay cable and check the telephone of the most exposed outpost and remained at this position until he was satisfied that everything was in order. As a result of the rapid action on the part of this Non Commissioned Officer complete control was mainained throughout the attack. The service rendered by Sergeant JOHNS to the regiment to which he as attached, has often been above and beyond the normal call of duty, and has won him the respect and admiration of all and has contributed greatly to the many successful actions fought by the regiment.

The test point was located in the center of Driel in the area of a forward company of the Perth Regt. and its purpose was to keep open line communications to be used to control a proposed crossing of the river at that point. During the hours of daylight the immediate area was under observation from the far side of the river and was constantly under fire from enemy mortars and machine guns. On ten separate occasions the lines were cut and each time Cpl Murray at once led his detachment to repair them. While up a pole making a splice, shells landed nearby. He ordered his men to cover but without regard for his own safety he completed the splices. Cpl Murray's devotion to duty and splendid example is typical of the fine service rendered by this N.C.O. throughout the campaign in Italy + N W Europe. [1 Canadian Corps Signals]

Reference Map HOLLAND 1/50,000 Sheet 5 ZUTPHEN. On 11 April 1945, 1 Canadian Infantry Division made an assault crossing of the IJSSEL River at MR 945024. L10515 Signalman (Acting Corporal) RIEBERGER was in command of a detachment of 1 Canadian Infantry Division Signals Line Section. Acting Corporal RIEBERGER'S task was to lay signal lines from the command post of the Commander Royal Engineers to the bridging sites of the three Field Companies. One of these bridging sites was on the far side of the river. Acting Corporal RIEBERGER worked ceaselissly from 1630 hours on 11 April until 0230 hours 12 April laying and maintaining the lines to these bridging sites. Throughout the whole of this he was under continuous shell fire. In one instance while paying out cable and shells were dropping all around him, he continued to ignore the safety of a slit trench nearby and carried on with his task ensuring that the lines did not become snarled or broken. At 0100 hours on that night it was reported to Corporal RIEBERGER that the line to the Forward Observation Officer was out. Realizing the vital necessity of counter battery fire he immediately volunteered to repair it. Under the harassing ocnditions of complete darkness he unertook this task of repairing a line with which he was not familiar and which was laid across ground he had not been over before. By his own initiative and courage Corporal RIEBERGER overcame these difficulties and repaired the line. Again, he was under countinuous shelling. Such unflinching devotion to his duty was a constant inspiration to his men. As a result of his efforts good communications were maintained with the bridging site and largely contributed to the successful bridging operation. [1 Canadian Infantry Divisional Signals]

Prior to and during the attack on 19 February 1945 on the Wood covering the approaches to Calcar, Corporal Stanley was in charge of the line detachment of "J" Section, 3 Canadian Infantry Division Signals. The tactical disposition of the units requuired that the line communications be laid along a road, which was in full view of the enemy and ran parallel to the wood. The plan to capture this wood was intricate and to effect success it was of paramount importance that line communications be maintained to all units under command at all times. For forty-eight hours prior to the operation this road was under continuous mortar and heavy artillery fire and all during this time, without pause for rest or food, and with members of his detachment being killed or wounded about him, Corporal Stanley laboured to build this line. He succeeded just prior to zero hour in completing an air line thirty feet above the ground that withstood all mortaring and shelling throughout the operation thus contributing materially to the success of the operation. This Non-Commissioned Officer's matchless courage, determination and devotion to duty was an example and inspiration to all ranks of "J" Section and his actions are worthy of the highest traditions of his Corps.

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty from the 8th to the 11th of August 1918 during the advance from DOMART (Sheet 66E.)

From the 8th to the 11th August 1918 this man was employed at Brigade to maintain the Divisional line.

He carried on with his work under the most adverse conditions, often for hours alone.

On the 10th and 11th August he was working almost constantly under heavy shell fire and in view of the enemy, and on one occasion he repaired over 15 breaks in the calbe during the night. It was largely due to his courage and untiring energy that communication to the Brigade was maintained. (War Diary, 4th Divisional Signal Company, 30 September 1918)

During the assembly previous to the attack the lines were frequently cut, but realising the most urgent need of maintaining communication and though exposed to heavy enemy shell fire, by his example and inspiration to the men of his command breaks were rapidly repaired and communication maintained. In the subsequent advance he was repeatedly exposed to heavy enemy machine gun fire and shell fire, but worked throughout two days and nights without sleep until wounded on the night of 28th Sept. The efforts of this N.C.O. contributed in a large degree to the successful maintenance of signal communication at a time when it was most important.
