BOND, M.C., on the patrol, and subsequent section attack, at night against enemy machine gun posts, which won that Officer the M.C. He returned safely, having penetrated the enemy lines. At DJEBEL MANSOUR, he volunteered, on his own initiative, to stalk an enemy sniper who was harassing the Platoon. After a long stalk, he was successful. His Platoon Commander, and the Platoon in general, testify to the fact that, at all times, and in all the actions the Platoon have seen, Guardsman SEALE has been outstanding for coolness and level-headedness. I recommend him for a periodical award of the Military Medal. Signed Major, Commanding 3rd Battalion GRENADIER GUARDS Granted M.M.
