DISTINGUISHED  CONDUCT  MEDAL

 

Date of Recommendation :  3 November 1917

 

” During our operations on the HERRON ROAD, early on the morning of 3rd November, 1917, this man was in charge of  a Hotchkiss Rifle.  The Country was very rough  and difficult and during the previous night enemy snipers had moved in amongst  the boulders to within 200- 300 yards  of our day outpost line.

For more than 2 hours , enemy fire kept Trooper LIVINGSTONE, and his two companions isolated , and although the two latter were killed  beside him, Trooper LIVINGSTONE  continued to work his Hotchkiss rifle and engaged the enemy at short range.  His action assisted materially in the occupation of the line , that formed our objective  and in the driving out  of enemy snipers. The manner in which this man has handled his Hotchkiss rifle  and team throughout the late operations has been beyond praise “.
