C.E. Storey

Tales of valour

Distinguished Service Order

"For gallantry and initiative in command of tank 'D. 14' on September 26, when he was called upon by G.O.C. 110th Brigade to clear up certain trenches S.E. of Gueudecourt which were holding up the infantry. Lieut. Storey took his car up and down each trench, working until all his petrol was exhausted and only two of the crew were unwounded. He is reported as having been responsible for the taking of between 200 and 300 prisoners.

I consider this to be the best tank performance up to date."
