- Second World War (1939-1945)
- 6th Royal Tank Regiment, British Army
- Awarded on:
- April 25th, 1941
During the actions on 10th and 11th December 1940, Sergeant Rycroft, on two occasions, had to leave his tank under heavy fire, on the first occasion to put out a fire which had started at the rear of his tank and on the second to assist and supervise the towing away of another tank.
His coolness and devotion to duty in the face of the enemy and the complete disregard for his own personal safety were a fine example to all ranks.
