APIERBRAN. Distinguished Conduct Medal.—Sergt. William Hansard Richards, 43rd Battery, 11th Australian F.A. Brigade, won the Distinguished Conduct Medal in the closing stages of the war on the Weston Front. Twenty-nine years of age, he is a nephew of Mr Thos. Richards, miller. of Abcrbran. and as a boy frequently spent his holidays at the Mill with his uncle and aunt. He went to Australia in his eighteenth year. and joined the Australian Expeditionary Force in Sep- tember, 1914. He was wounded in Gallipoli (shot through the right lung) and was badly gassed in France, but made a good recovery in each case. After about four years of war he returned to Melbourne, Australia at the end of January last. The official account of the gallant service for which Sergt. Richards was recommended for the D.C.M. is as follows Vendhuik, 29/9/18. "For most conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty during the attack on the Hindenburg Line. south of Vendhuik, 29!f)! 1 ¡. Through the operation his battery was under heavy artillery and machine gun fire, and the whole of his detachment were either killed or wounded early in the battle. Notwithstanding this he continued to serve his gun alone till a new detachment could be organised. His wonderful grit, determination and courage were most inspiring and set the finest example to the men of the battery. It was greatly due to his splendid personal efforts that the battery was able to main- tain the effective artillery barrage during the operation." r
