    24th Guards Brigade, 1st Division, 5 Corps
    36921 Temporary Lieutenant-Colonel, War Substantive Major Claud Andrew MONTAGU-DOUGLAS-SCOTT, 1st Battalion IRISH GUARDS.

    In the attacks carried out by this Brigade starting on 23rd and 27th April 1943 and ending in the attack and consolidation of the footing gained on DJEBEL BOU AOUKAZ the performance put up by the 1st Battalion IRISH GUARDS was little short of stupendous.

    It was only by sheer determination and a tremendous spirit within the Battalion that the ground gained was not lost on at least four occasions. The personal courage and coolness of the Commanding Officer was undoubtedly the main reason for the magnificent performance put up by the Battalion.

    By sheer personality, by dint of making rapid appreciations and by controlling his Battalion in action for nearly three days without rest, he held the whole Battalion together and confounded the enemy.

    [Typed addition] WIth indomitable courage and fortitude this officer commanded his battalion, which fought with gallantry which can seldom if ever be equalled. His coolness in action inspired all ranks. He refused to accept defeat and by sheer personality inspired his unit to victory against heavy odds.

    Granted an Immediate D.S.O.
