Conspicuous bravery in the field

A Hare Hatch man was commended for his courage in battle.

Hare Hatch Notes

We hear with pride, the good news that Cpl. O. Hussey, the son of Mr. and Mrs. E. Hussey, Tag Lane, has distinguished himself on the field of battle. Below is a copy of the Official report from the Major General of the 7th Division.

“ 30/7/16. Cpl. O. Hussey, 95th Field Co., R.E.
“Your Commanding Officer has informed me that you
“have distinguished yourself by conspicuous bravery
“in the field on 1st July, 1916. I have read this report
“and although promotion and decoration cannot be
“given in every case, I should like you to know that
“your gallant action is recognised and greatly appre-
“ciated.”

We heartily congratulate Orlando and trust that he may be spared to return home with greater honours.

I have read their reports, and, although promotion and decorations cannot be given in every case, I should like you to know that your gallant action is recognised and how greatly it is appreciated.
