Maj H.L. Hurdle
WW2
24 August 1944
As Officer Commanding 1 Cdn Armd Bde Sigs, Major Hurdle developed the fundamental practices of infantry-tank communications used so effectively through the Italian campaign. His innovations in this field have become standard practice and drill carried out by the Bde. His great technical knowledge, ability and initiative were towers of strength during critical periods in operations. At no time during the campaign did communications falter, with the direct result that contact was maintained always, even under difficult and trying conditions, with the most forward of tank forces. Under his supervision every variety of wireless combination was used with success to fit varying phases of operations. The untiring efforts of this officer contributed directly to the successes won in this period by the Bde.
