A Classic Old Contemptible [THE MILITARY MEDAL]
"London Gazette ( ) November 1916"
Many of the gallantry medals to R.A.M.C. soldiers who served in the field ambulances were awarded for rescuing casualties under withering enemy rifle and artillery fire, so it's fairly safe to assume that Cpl 'Willy' Walton performed such an act of bravery which led to the award of his Military Medal.
