AWARD OF THE DCM TO ACTING REGIMENTAL SERGEANT MAJOR RADFORD
"For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty when in charge of regimental dumps. He was responsible for getting water and bombs forward for the use of companies during the attack. The enemy was shelling very heavily and his parties came under very heavy machine-gun fire. He, however, continued to exhort his men to further efforts with the utmost determination and courage, and, by his splendid personal example under appalling weather conditions and intense hostile fire, the dumps were kept filled."
