The Great War 1914-1918
Sergeant T. Caldwell 12th RSF
For most conspicuous bravery and initiative in attacking near Audenarde 1918, when in command of a Lewis gun section engaged in clearing a farmhouse. When his section came under intense fire at close range from another farm, Sergeant Caldwell rushed forward towards the farm, and, in spite of very heavy fire, reached the enemy position which he captured single-handed, together with 18 prisoners. This gallant and determined exploit removed a serious obstacle from the line of advance, saved many casualties, and led to the capture by his section of about 70 prisoners, 8 machine guns and a trench mortar.
