Recommendation (drafted by Major T.L. Molloy):
"On 27th May P.S.M. Brown was commanding the right forward platoon of the Battalion. At 5 am that morning the enemy broke through on his right flank and for ten hours P.S.M. Brown by his example, coolness and leadership maintained his original position despite very heavy shell fire and three strong attacks by the enemy during which period his platoon suffered very heavy casualties. On the eventual orders to withdraw, P.S.M. Brown extricated his platoon under heavy fire. His conduct throughout the operations was an inspiration to all ranks."
