Fire at a Munition Dump LLANELLY GUNNER'S SPLENDID I HEROISM. Official news was received on Wednes- I Official news W'aT received on 'YedneS-¡ day that Gunner W. T. Rogers, R.F .A., son of Mr. Tom Rogers, 107, Old Castle road, has been awarded the Military Medal. Our gallant townsman before the war was employed as a behinder at the Old Castle Works, where the news of his decoration was received with special pleasure. The official description of the act reads as follows:— ) "He received this Medal for gallantry and devotion to duty in arresting the spreading of a fire to adjacent dumps w hen enemy r shell fire caused the loss of about 26,000 rounds of ammunition in the forward area on July 28th last." The medal was forwarded by the Officer Commanding for presentation with the C.R.A's and his own congratulations. For the presentation ceremony all the men were paraded, and the Colonel pinned the ribbon to the medallist's tunic and spoke warmly of his act of bravery. Gunner Rogers was one of the first to volunteer for his country, and has been out in the thick of the fighting in France since December, 1915. Up to the present he has escaped unscathed, and we trust that his good fortune will continue until the end. He is an old Lakefield School boy and is remembered with affection by his old master and teachers.
