A Canadian DCM for Artillery Action Outside Sancourt 1918

A Canadian DCM for Artillery Action Outside Sancourt 1918 - Distinguished Conduct Medal (338818 A.B.Q.M. SJT. H.M.KELLY. CAN: F.A.); British War Medal (338818 A.B.Q.M. SJT. H.M.KELLY. C.F.A.); and Victory Medal (338818 A.B.Q.M. SJT. H.M.KELLY. C.F.A.). Naming is officially impressed. Un-mounted, dark patina on the BWM, light contact, near extremely fine.   Footnote: Hugh Moore Kelly was born on January 17, 1890 in Drumkirk, Comber, County Down, Ireland. He had been living in Vancouver, British Columbia, when he signed his Attestation Paper with the 68th Infantry Battalion, on April 19, 1916 in Vancouver, naming his next-of-kin as his father, Mr. Patrick Kelly of Drumkirk, stating that he had no previous military service, that he was not married and that his trade was that of Oiler on a CPR Steamboat. He was later transferred to the 13th Brigade, Canadian Field Artillery. Kelly was with the 2nd Battalion, CFA, as part of the Canadian Expeditionary Force in Valenciennes from late October 1918. He was cited for his Distinguished Conduct Medal in both the London Gazette on March 11, 1920 and in the Canada Gazette on April 24, 1920, p.3618: "For marked gallantry in action. Near Sancourt, on 30th September, 1918, when the battery was moving to positions under heavy enemy shelling, he, though wounded, stuck to his gun and put it in action. When a lull occurred in the enemy fire, he led the ammunition wagons in and took charge of the unloading of ammunition."
