    Reference Map Tunisia, 1:50,000, Sheet No. 34

    During the battle for the high ground North of BOU ARADA on 26th February 1943, an enemy Machine Gun was inflicting casualties on F Company.

    Rifleman JANES moved forward to an exposed position and stayed there under heavy fire in order to direct the fire of a Light Machine Gun which was engaging the Machine Gun. He stayed in this position for about twenty minutes during which time his steel helmet was struck by an enemy bullet and Rifleman JANES knocked unconscious. When he recovered he continued to direct the fire until the Machine Gun had been put out of action.

    Rifleman JANES' complete disregard of his own personal safety and his determination to destroy the enemy was a magnificent example to the remainder of his Platoon.

    Regiment: 1 Battalion Royal Ulster Rifles
    Theatre of Combat or Operation: North West Europe 1944-45

    7012822 Warrant Officer (Company Sergeant Major) William McCUTCHEON, 6 Airlanding Brigade, 6 Airborne Division, 1 Corps

    For gallantry, devotion to duty and conspicuous bravery in the field. Near CABOURG on 18th August 1944, the Reconnaissance Platoon while leading the Battalion, came under heavy fire from Machine Guns, mortars and rifles. It suffered casualties and with minefields on both its flanks was in a very difficult position. The Reconnaissance Platoon Commander called for assistance and C.S.M. McCUTCHEON went forward with stretcher bearers.

    Two hours ensued during which time the stretcher bearers slowly dragged the wounded into what cover there was, immediate covering fire being provided together with 2" and 3" mortar smoke from 'C' Company.

    The whole operation was organised by Captain MARTIN, the Reconnaissance Platoon Commander, who was frequently absent organising further smoke and covering fire. During these absences C.S.M. McCUTCHEON took over command and assisted in the carriage of stretchers. He also repulsed an attack, on the Platoon flank, by a German patrol.

    Throughout the operation he showed a complete disregard for his own personal safety, his coolness and tenacity made a difficult operation possible, and he finally came out himself carrying a stretcher with the Platoon Commander, crossing a minefield in the process.

    Over the whole period his bravery, as always with this Warrant Officer, was absolute, and he was an inspiration to all, Officers and men alike.
