The First World War 1914 

On 15 September 1914 near Vendresse, east of Soissons and between the River Aisne to the south and the Chemin des Dames to the north, Bombardier E G Horlock, Royal Field Artillery, though twice wounded, stayed with his gun despite being ordered to the rear by a medical officer.


 For conspicuous gallantry on 15th September, near Vendresse, when his Battery was in action under a heavy shell fire, in that, although twice wounded, he persisted on each occasion in returning to lay his gun after his wound had been dressed.
