Lt. Rupert Murray Millett, R. Can. Regt., Nova Scotia Regt. - He commanded a company with conspicuous success throughout eight days operations. During a night attack he commanded the left front line company, and it was largely due to his carefully formed dispositions, leadership, dash and initiative that the objective was taken and consolidated, and communications established with the left flank within two hours of jumping off. Throughout he showed himself regardless of personal danger under enemy fire. His reliability greatly facilitated the work of his battalion commander.
