CANADIAN FORCE

Capt. George Watson Anderson, Infy.

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty in a raid, previous to which he had reconnoitred the enemy's front and laid his plans with great judgment.  On the night he gallantly led his party forward to the objective, accounted for several of the enemy, besides capturing three officers, three other ranks, and a machine-gun.  He then supervised the withdrawal, being the last to leave.  His coolness and leadership were an example to all.
