T./ 2nd Lt. Thomas Sharp Riley, A.S.C..

‘For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. While in charge of several lorries under heavy shell fire this officer personally conduced each lorry over a portion of exposed road to the dumping point. On return there was a temporary block in the road at a point which was being subjected to intense bombardment by the enemy, one driver being severely wounded. With utter disregard for his personal safety he carried the wounded man to a ditch, helped to dress his wounds and personally helped him back to the nearest aid post. His coolness and devotion to duty not only ensued the delivery of valuable material, but also encouraged all the lorry drivers.’
