Bombardier Gavin Ian Reid
Bombardier Reid, Artillery, a member of Battery “C”, 1st Regiment, Royal Canadian Horse Artillery, distinguished himself by meritorious service in Korea from 6 May 1952 to 19 September 1952. As Battery Signal Non-Commissioned Officer, responsible for continual supervision and maintenance of the battery communication lines, he carried out the multiplicity of intricate details incident to his key position in an exemplary manner. When enemy artillery fire severed vital lines of communication, disregarding his own safety, he constantly exposed himself to hostile fire to personally inspect and repair the lines. Bombardier Reid’s fortitude, determination of purpose, and devotion to duty materially furthered the cause of the United Nations in Korea and reflect great credit upon himself and the military service.
Captain Robert J. Staples
Captain Robert J. Staples, Royal Canadian Artillery, as Liaison Officer for the British Commonwealth Forces in Korea, distinguished himself by meritorious service from 15 April 1952 to 30 January 1953. Cognizant of the significant role which he played in integrating the movement of men and supplies of the Commonwealth forces into the overall United Nations operations and the necessity for smooth interrelation within the complex United Nations logistical operations, Captain Staples established an exemplary rapport with ports, depots, and technical services of the Korean Base Section. His technical knowledge and adeptness at preplanning insured and facilitated timely movement of vast numbers of troops and impedimenta despite vicissitudes and obstacles, including transportation, equipment, terrain difficulties, and adverse weather conditions. He carefully screened, with an acute eye for economy, major requests for assistance and support. He cooperated closely in key local defence and vital fire protection plans. With his broad knowledge of United States Army organization, he promoted excellent cooperation between units and personnel. His outstanding administrative and executive abilities contributed immeasurably to the effectiveness of the United Nations effort in Korea. The meritorious service rendered by Captain Staples reflects credit upon himself and the British Commonwealth forces.
