Lieutenant Gerard Charles Evans MC
Captain Russel (Rud) Joseph Everett MC
On 12 Aug 44 Lt RJ Everett was acting as an AGRA representative with the Polish Armd Div on an armoured recce Southeast of ST SYLVAN. Communication difficulties necessitated taking his carrier along with the tanks. Due to this Lt Everett had to climb alternatively between the tank and the carrier in order to pass fire orders. In spite of this and the fact that they were under heavy shell and mortar fire he carried out his task to completion. Lt Everett by his actions showed courage and fortitude under most difficult circumstances. Throughout the campaign in North West Europe his officer has shown marked initiative and aggressiveness. He has shown himself to be an unusually capable officer and has made a contribution to the success of his unit over and above that which might normally be expected.
Lieutenant Russell Joseph Everett MC
Captain Reginald George Fitzgerald MC
Captain Lloyd Barclay Fleet MC
Captain James Flintoft MC
Captain John Brooke Forbes MC
On October 1944 during operations by four Canadian armoured divisions to capture Bergen Op Zoom, Capt. Forbes acted as forward observation officer with “”B”” company Algonquin Regiment. This company supported by tanks had captured a cross roads of considerable importance southeast of the town and was ordered to hold this position though cut off from the rest of the battalion. Early in the morning the enemy counter-attacked this position. The company commander was wounded and evacuated leaving Captain Forbes the senior officer present with one subaltern of the company and the subaltern of the tank troop. Captain Forbes immediately took command of the force. With no regard for his own safety, Captain Forbes, during repeated counter-attacks which were supported by heavy fire, throughout the day left his tank and moved about the position, liasing with the two officers, organizing the defence , and encouraging the men by his visits and personal direction. By personal liaison and use of his artillery communications he passed vital information and implemented the battalion commanders plan. This was in addition to his normal duties as forward observation officer. He continued to direct artillery fire which was responsible for breaking up the successive enemy counter-attacks. Capt. Forbes held the position all day until flanking attacks by other troops rendered the ground valueless to the enemy who ceased his attacks and withdrew during the night. The continued defence of the position, essential to the later capture of Bergen Op Zoom was due almost entirely to Capt. Forbes initiative in assuming responsibility, determination and coolness under fire, and indifference to his own danger.
