Sgt Henry Percy Charters, 4th Field Company, Military Medal

Background 

During the period of operations from 14 July 1943 to 21 July 1943, this Non-Commissioned Officer had led many engineer reconnaissance parties under fire in order to get information for future operations. On the 18 July and again on the 19 July north of Piazza Armerina, Sicily, this Non-Commissioned Officer was in charge of road clearing parties while under fire. By his coolness and his example to his men, obstacles were quickly overcome.
