For conspicuous gallantry and ability from the 8th to the 12th August 1915 at Chailak Dere (Dardanelles), At one time three guns of the battery were out of action through being hit by bullets, breakages or other damage.  Bombardier Fitter Inglis, assisted by another man, managed to get them all in action again and keep them going.  Te effect this he had, on more than one occasion, to strip and repair the guns while under heavy fire.  His coolness and bravery were most marked, and his work highly valuable at a critical time.
