Spr Raymond Donald Foster - Military Medal - 16th Field Company

Military Medal

Sapper Foster's job as dispatch rider during D-Day called on him to maintain contact with the Engineer Reconnaissance Officer with the leading infantry and No.2 Platoon Commander, following immediately behind, doing mine clearance of the road. During the whole of "D" Day he made repeated trips along the road between Bernieres-sur-Mer and Le Mare, regardless of enemy snipers and mortar fire, and on more than one occasion, travelling when the infantry along the road were pinned down.
