WOODCOCK, Lieut. Humphrey Neville Hodson ... ... 6/Royal West Kent

Near EPEHY, 22nd September, 1918. During operations he showed great gallantry in an attack upon an entrenched enemy machine gun. He led his platoon across the open with great dash and shot two of the enemy. The enemy counter-attacked with superior numbers, and drove him out; but he reorganised and led his men to a second attack which was completely successful. Though wounded he waited to see the post consolidated before going down.
