    Details of awards made to Officers and men of the Lincolnshire Regiment during WW2. This includes those attached to the Lincolns or attached to other units. It also includes men of 7 Lincolns whose battalion were converted to Royal Artillery and wore the shoulder patch to show their link to the Lincolns. If I have missed any names, I apologise in advance. (Please PM me if you spot any errors or omission). If you are interested in someone's details who I've not yet posted, who is on the pdf file, please also PM me.

    AS THE CITATION IS DIFFICULT TO READ, IT IS TRANSCRIBED AS FOLLOWS.

    ON THE NIGHT 19/20 AUGUST AT ST. PIERRES SUR DIVES, SGT ADAMS WAS IN CHARGE OF A GUN WHEN AN ATTACK ON THE AREA WAS MADE BY ABOUT 20 AIRCRAFT WITH HIGH EXPLOSIVE AND INCENDIARY BOMBS. AS THE ATTACK DEVELOPED A STICK OF BOTH TYPES OF BOMBS FELL ACROSS THE GUN SETTING FIRE TO THE BIVOUAC AND THE CAMOUFLAGE NET AND WOUNDING ONE OF THE ATTACHMENT.

    BOMBS CONTINUED TO FALL VERY CLOSE TO THE GUN BUT SGT ADAMS WHO WAS OFF DUTY AT THE TIME RAN ACROSS AND WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF ANOTHER MAN DROVE THE GUN CLEAR OF THE BURNING BIVOUAC & THEN REMOVED THE BURNING CAMOUFLAGE NET.

    BY THIS PROMPT ACTION, SGT ADAMS UNDOUBTABLY SAVED THE GUN FROM DESTRUCTION AND ALSO SET A HIGH EXAMPLE OF DEVOTION TO DUTY.”
