MOORE, A.E. and Gnr. MEERS, E.W. continuously went through a very heavy enemy barrage in order to discover and mend breaks in the lines. Their excellent work enabled this Battery to engage many opportunity targets and assist in breaking up counter attacks which would not have been possible but for the great courage and coolness displayed by these two men." (A.F.W. 3121.11-5-17).
