"On 17 June during operations at Halfaya Pass, (located in Egypt/Lybian border) Asst. Surg Vaughan reached the Troop Position whilst it was being heavily shelled by Medium Artillery, and tended the wounded. By this time enemy A.F.Vs had reached the lip of the Escarpment and the position was under continuous fire from open sights. Two men were hit on either side of the W.O. and this did not deter him from continuing his duty. I consider that Asst. Surg Vaughan showed great devotion to duty under exceptional circumstances."
