SNIPING THE SNIPER. I NEATH D.C.M.'S FEAT. I Amongst the list of D.C.M.'s re- cently awarded appears the name of a Neath soldier, Private R. J. Hughes, of the 8th Battalion Somerset Light Infantry. Private Hughes, more familiarly known as "Dick" Hughes, lived with his family at Penydre, Neath, and for years was a prominent supporter of the "All Blacks. He joined the Army at the outbreak of wa.r as a reservist and has seen active service in France for over 18 months. The incident which won him the pre- sent honour occurr.ed over the capture of a German sniper, who had wrought considerable havoc amongst the Somerset battalion. Private Dick Hughes and Private Godfrey, of the same regiment, undertook to "lay" the sniper, when Godfrey was unfor- tunately shot down. Hughes carried his comrade back into safety and then proceeded alone. He reached a farm- house safely, although ITullets were flying all around him, and caught. sight of the sniper in an upper storey. He was in the act of pulling the trigger at another victim when Private Hughes, with accurate aim, shot him dead.
