Cpl. John Thomas Bell DCM.
British Army CIII Brigade, A Battery Royal Field Artillery
John Bell's citation reads: On the 16th June 1918 this N.C.O. behaved with magnificent courage and devotion to duty. Throughout a four hour heavy bombardment, he continually visited each gun pit, supervised the fitting of new springs under heavy fire, examined the guns, and it was largely due to his untiring efforts that the guns of this Battery were all kept in action. Later in the day when ammunition was running short he took charge of a party and carried ammunition for two hours along a heavily shelled track through the wood. Awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal for the above, signed;
E F Falkner Lieut-Colonel D.A.A. & Q.M.G.
He also was awarded a Medal Militaire for the same.
