==========================
Temporary Captain Richard Collier Coatsworth, R.A.M.C.
During an enemy attack he early led his regimental stretcherbearers through very heavy shell fire to remove all wounded that could be found. He organized the removal of wounded, and by his perpetual cheerfulness and coolness set a fine example to his men, and effected the successful evacuation of many wounded.
