London Gazette 25 February 1943. During the night attack on 23/24 October. The Pl. of which the Section, which Cpl. Drummond commanded formed part, was held up by a strong enemy position surrounded by wire and from which a large number of stick grenades were being thrown. The Pl. Commander was killed and the Pl. Sgt. seriously wounded and the attack at this point was in imminent danger of being held up; Cpl. Drummond immediately took command of the Pl. and led a successful bayonet assault over the wire and into the enemy position - the surviving enemy thereupon surrendering. He thereafter reorganized the Pl. without delay and continued the advance. But for Cpl.
