Military Medal for Corp. C Brown

It will be learnt with much pleasure by residents of Farnborough that a gallant soldier, well known to many of them, has been awarded the Military Medal for devotion to duty during battle.  Corporal C Brown, of the Middlesex Regiment, was employed in the nursery and market garden of Mr W Lawrence, at Crofton Road for nine years before being called up in March, 1916.  He went out to the Front the following August, and has since seen a great deal of severe fighting.  During a recent heavy enemy attack he was acting as stretcher-bearer, assisting the Medical Officer at the aid post just behind the lines. During the attack his Medical Officer was killed and the sergeant badly wounded. He remained at his post and carried on by himself under heavy fire. He was presented the medal ribbon on 6th January, 1918
