CLARK Stanley Owen
40145, Lieutenant, 1st Battalion, Auckland Regiment
Gazetted 2 December 1918, p14289
During two days hard fighting he proved himself a gallant and resourceful leader, quickly grasping the meaning of any change in the situation. Once when the battalion on the flank was retiring, he went out under heavy fire to ascertain all the circumstances and came back and formed a defensive flank, and sent in reports which were of great assistance to his commanding officer. He set a splendid example to his men.
