"To O. I. G. Div. H. Q. / Cairo 1942

Sir,

I submit this recommendation for A/CPL T H Lundie (?) to be awarded the military medal for outstanding bravery. This NCO courageously, without fear for his own life, crawled out from our position for 100 yards approx to where I was lying badly wounded, while under heavy German tank fire, outside El Alamein. This NCO, with great tenacity [d]ragged me back to our position, after red X attention I was rushed to hospital. This NCO is a credit to his regiment. He has saved my life, and deserves due recognition. I have handed him my own M M [military medal], which I was awareded when I was an NCO. Hoping this meets with your approval.

I am,
Sir,
A R Lewis Lt
K. O. R. R."
