Theobald Francis Morey Le Besque
Tales of valour
Le BESQUE Theobald Francis Morey, (Private)
15th Battalion Tank Corps
On August 21st 1918, during the attack on the Arras-Albert railway, in the neighbourhood of Courcelles, and on August 30th-31st, during the attack on the village of Vaulx-Vraucourt, Private Le Besque was my runner. On three occasions he displayed great bravery and disregard for personal safety in carrying and delivering messages under very heavy shell and machine-gun fire. He also rendered very valuable assistance during an occasion upon which a number of tanks had to be withdrawn to the rallying point under very trying circumstances. He also proved to be very reliable on all occasions during operations.
