Name J. Todd
Rank Private
Number 26994

Citation For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty during an enemy raid. When the enemy opened a heavy barrage on the line of posts he went forward in advance of one of the posts with ammunition for a Lewis gun and assisted in dispersing a party of about 40 of the enemy who were advancing. When the Lewis gun was put out of action by a trench mortar bomb he remained at his post, covered the withdrawal of the remainder of the section with his revolver, and was still at his post when his section advanced to re-establish the position. He set a splendid example of courage and determination.
