WAGNER, Lieut. Dixon Park ... ... ... ... n/Dublin Fusiliers

Near BOESINGHE, 9th August, 1917. For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty.
Having taken over and established two advanced posts close to a farm which was strongly held by the enemy, he displayed the greatest gallantry and determination during the difficult work of consolidation under close rifle fire and heavy shelling.

BAR TO M.C.

ST. Louis, in the COURTRAI sector, 20/21 October, 1918. For conspicuous gallantry and initiative. When both Lewis guns of his platoon were put out of action, and he was unable to advance owing to machine-gun fire, he, by a daring reconnaissance, located the enemy machine gun, which he engaged and silenced with rifle fire, thus enabling his platoon to get forward. His fine action greatly facilitated the general advance of his company to its objective.
