As Company runner during a period when the Company was in continuous close contact with the enemy, Guardsman CAULFIELD was on many occasions called on to carry messages in full view of enemy snipers and often under very heavy shell and small arms fire. His keenness to carry out these tasks and his cheerful words of encouragement to every section he visited were an inspiration to the whole company. From the 1st to the 8th February, when he was wounded by a sniper, the Company was in continuous close contact with the enemy and few hours passed without his having to cross open ground in full view of the enemy. He soon earned the reputation of bearing a charmed life, and his cheerful disregard of danger could not be too highly praised.
