WOLF Edward Moses, (2nd Lieutenant)

“C” Battalion Tank Corps

For conspicuous gallantry during the Third Battle of Ypres on August 22nd 1917. This officer commanded his tank with the greatest skill and gallantry in very difficult ground in the attack on Hill 35. Although his tank became “bellied” early in the morning, he held onto his position in front of the infantry and enabled them to consolidate by keeping enemy fire down with his Lewis guns. After he and his crew had been in action nearly 26 hours and were very exhausted, he with the assistance of his crew, completely broke up the right flank of an enemy counter attack and thereby saved a critical situation. He displayed throughout the day a magnificent example of courage and endurance.
