AWARDED THE MILITARY CROSS.

Temporary 2nd Lieutenant Karl Pfeuffar, Royal West Kent Regiment 

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. When the enemy had penetrated our front line and occupied a concrete dug-out, he first kept them at bay by throwing bombs from a position within twenty-five yards of the dug-out, and then led a counter-attack, across the open in the most fearless fashion, which took the enemy completely by surprise. It was due to his fine personal example that fourteen prisoners were taken, and the position entirely re-established.
