WHITAKER, Capt. Donald Nicoll ... ... ( 12/Hampshire (6/Royal Lancaster)

Near MONCHY, 18th June, 1917. For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty.
Although knocked down and buried by a shell, which rendered him unconscious, during an intense enemy bombardment, he insisted on returning to his company, as soon as he regained consciousness, in order to conduct the defence of the advanced posts and trenches which they were occupying. He was a second time buried by a shell, but remained in command until the attack had been beaten off, setting a magnificent example of pluck and devotion to duty.
