"Since the 15th June 1943, captain SHAN LONE has travelled 300 miles on foot through enemy-occupied territory in Northern Burma. During this period he has been transmitting intelligence of high military value by means of his wireless set. This officer, having contacted other loyal personnel and members of his operational party, who had landed by parachute, is now rallying support and continuing to transmit valuable military intelligence.
Bearing in mind the extreme penalty for the smallest error and the arduous existence in such hazardous circumstances, he has shown personal courage, initiative and determination of the highest order."
