SUPPLEMENT TO THE LONDON GAZETTE, 16 SEPTEMBER, 1918; 13 September 1918, Issue number: 30901

Lt. James Thomas Probert, Nova Scotia Regt. - For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. This officer led a raiding party against an enemy post. In the first attempt he was wounded, and all the bombs were expended; but after fetching up more the post was reached and the garrison driven into a dug-out in rear, a machine gun and other materiel being captured. He was wounded a second time, but persisted until his objective was gained.
