Son of Andrew and Grace CLARK

Military Cross

'For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He remained on duty for nearly three days with only four hours rest, attending to over 300 cases of wounded, and working mostly under extremely heavy fire. On many previous occasions he has done excellent work whilst under fire, displaying the greatest courage and devotion.'
