For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty when out patrolling with two officers.  The patrol was attacked with bombs by a concealed enemy post.  Both officers were badly wounded and Private Dallard slightly.  He carried one to safety and went back to rescue the other, who was lying within fifteen yards of the enemy post.  In face of a further shower of bombs, by which he was again wounded in three places, he got to within ten paces of the officer and found him dead.  He then returned to the other officer and carried him back to the lines.  He then returned to the other officer and carried him back to the lines.  He showed great pluck and determination
