    Captain (temporary Major) Julius Cecil Summ, M.B., Royal Army Medical Corps, was made a Member of the Order of the British Empire.
    "This officer has rendered invaluable services as my second-in-command throughout the whole period under review. The unit has on many occasions been ‘strafed’ from the air and bombed. Major Summ has invariably been the first to go round the leaguer completely regardless of his own personal safety to see that the patients are safe and reassure them; also to find and give medical treatment to the men of his own unit who have become casualties.” Major Summ by his personal example and courage at all times has been an inspiration to the officers and me of this unit serving with a forward brigade throughout the battle since Alamein; he has been directly responsible for maintaining the moral of the unit at a high level during many difficult times.

    Major Summ was born in Clones, Co. Monaghan.
