Shortly after the return of his party, the enemy made a bombing attack on our saps. Capt. Allison immediately returned to the saps and organized a couter-attack, which not only drove off the Germans, but followed them up and bombed them back into their own trenches. Durin gthe past nine months Capt. Allison has repeatedly shown great courage and resource whilst leading petrols, and has set a splendid example to all ranks".
