For conspicuous bravery, notably from September 28 to October I, 1915, as senior non· commissioned officer of a bearer division, when he showed the greatest courage and total disregard of personal danger in collecting and evacuating wounded from the village of Loos lInd the neighbouring trenches, which were under a heavy and continuous fire.

His devotion to duty was most marked .

.39419 Private G. T. Veitch, 39th Field Ambulance, Royal Army Medical Corps. For conspicuous bravery on August 22, 1915, during operations near Gaba Tepe

(Dardanelles). An advance was being made by rushes over a space swept by shrapnel fire. As each rush passed over, numerous dead and wounded were left lying within the danger zone. Private Veitch voluntarily went out and remained attending to the wounded and bringing as many as possible into safety, in spite of the fact that it was only at the greatest personal risk that the ground could be passed over. He remained under the hail of bullets for nearly half an hour. His bravery and devotion to duty -were beyond praise.
