CROWTHER Percy, (Temporary 2nd Lieutenant)

9th Battalion, Tank Corps.

During the action near Mormal Forest on November 4th 1918, under heavy shell fire in the night, 2nd Lieutenant Crowther taped a route for tanks that could not be done until Y/Z night. He then led them up to their jumping off positions, although the machine gun fire was so severe that all crews were inside their tanks, and by his devotion to duty and determination he ensured that all his tanks were up to time, without which the progress of the operation in question would have been impeded.
