ROBSON Thomas Kenneth, (Lieutenant, Acting Captain)

6th Battalion Tank Corps

This officer reported to me with two tanks at Judd’s Farm, St Leger, about 6.30 pm on March 23rd 1918. At that time the line was in danger of being broken by a heavy attack on the side of the enemy. Captain Robson, acting under my instructions, took his two tanks out in front of our line under a heavy barrage of shell and machine-gun fire, and personally conducted their operations. Captain Robson showed great gallantry and rendered invaluable assistance.
Our line was made good, and Captain Robson only withdrew his tanks on my orders when the light failed and the situation was normal again.
