"At Salerno on the 9th Sept 43 this Officer's troop was one of two which attacked and held a part of the West of the town. Capt. Henderson was conspicuous in the attack, and when counter attacked by infantry and tanks, took a most active part in repelling the assaults, himself scoring two hits on the leading tank with a Piat mortar when the tanks were shelling the house in which he was, at 100 yards range. The tank turret was jammed and almost immediately the tanks drew off."
