bulletDistinguished Service Order to Colonel William Carter MC
DSO to Lieutenant (Temporary Major) William Carter MC King’s Own and GSO 11 HQ, XIII Corps
“On October 4th, 1918, when sent forward to ascertain the situation, he found the attack held up by heavy machine gun fire and the infantry somewhat disorganised. He collected two tanks, reorganised two companies of infantry, and restarted the advance which had been checked. On October 8th, when detailed to report on the progress of the attack, he found that most of the Serain was still in the hands of the enemy. He returned, collected more troops, led them into the village, and organised the systematic mopping up of the area. He showed great gallantry, enterprise and determination.”
