INDENTD.C.M. London Gazette 1.5.1918. Corporal, Acting Sergeant, J. Stirling, Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders (Glasgow).
"For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. After a strong hostile counter-attack, which forced one company to give ground, his company being ordered up in support, he on his own initiative, on four seperate occasions went out with bombs to harass the enemy, realising that the enemy would have to be held for such time as would enable a counter-attack to be organised. His gallant action was undoubtedly one of the main reasons for the failure of the enemy to press home his attack on the village."
D.C.M. London Gazette 29.11.1915. Private C. McChord, 12th Battalion, Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. "For conspicuous gallantry on 25th October, 1915 in France. He was working in a mine with two Royal Engineer Sappers when the latter were overcome by gas. Promptly and without assistance he dragged the two men to the bottom of the shaft and tied them to a rope, by which they were pulled up into safety to the surface" (Illustration in Deeds that Thrill the Empire refers)
