These 3 men of the 140th Field Regiment, Royal Artillery were killed in North Africa. 2 are buried at Enfidaville War Cemetery and the other at Medjez-el-Bab War Cemetery. The 3 men were recommended for the Croix de Guerre, but it appears to have been turned down due to the fact that they were killed. Was this because the Croix de Guerre is not awarded when men have been killed. This is the citation translated from the French for Gunner Wilfred Leslie Morgan and I quote "A first rate gunner, fearless and courageous, who has constantly shown, under fire, outstanding soliderly qualities. He was gloriously killed in action on the 29th April before Fahs bridge." Name: MORGAN, WILFRED LESLIE Rank: Gunner Regiment/Service: Royal Artillery Unit Text: 140 Field Regt.
