SUPPLEMENT TO THE LONDON GAZETTE, 3 SEPTEMBER, 1919; Issue number: 31534, Page number: 11176

477317 C./S./M. J. Foy, R. Can. R. - For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty as company serjeant-major and latterly as regimental serjeant-major. He has performed exceptionally valuable service in the line throughout the past year, never missing a trip, and his great personal gallantry, initiative and energy are largely reponsible for the efficient manner in which front line companies always had their rations delivered to them. By his unfailing reliability in the performance of his duties in the line he was of the greatest assistance to his battalion commander.
