    Brigadier Bryan John Fowler, M.C., Royal Regiment of Artillery, was awarded the Distinguished Service Order.
    Brigadier Fowler has carried out the duties of a Commander of Royal Artillery with great distinction from April 28th, 1942, to date.

    Throughout the whole period he has been indefatigable in improving the standard of gunnery in the division.

    He has had countless difficulties to contend with, but with dogged perseverance and a complete disregard of fatigue he has invariably surmounted each crisis with marked ability.

    During every operation, in the Knightsbridge area in May and June, on the Ruweisat ridge in July and August, at Alamein in October and November and beyond, with a complete disregard of his safety and frequently under heavy fire, he continually visited the most forward observation posts, giving advice and encouragement to young Forward Observation Officers.
    His devotion to duty, his determination to allow nothing to stand in the way of maximum efficiency, his invariable habit of doing “that something extra which counts,” and above all his courage in action, have always been inspiring, and an encouragement to those under his command and to all who saw him.

    Brigadier Fowler was born in Kells, Co. Meath, and his home is in Navan.
