WILLIAMS, 2/Lieutenant William Theophilus ... ... ... ... 2/East Kent

Near "Fosse 8," BETHUNE. 28/29 September, 1915. For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He took charge of a small party of bombers, and during iy hours he and his bombers threw close on 2,000 bombs, while the enemy responded with about five times that number. It was raining nearly all the time, and the damp fuses had to be lit from cigarettes, yet the enemy were held up. 2/Lieutenant Williams, though wounded, refused to leave his post, and it was mainly due to his bravery and that of his party that the trench was finally held.
