No. 6398354 Corporal Wilfred Herbert Eric Goodhall, 7th Bn.

At Amiens on May 20⁄21 and succeeding days this N.C.O. was with 2⁄Lt. E.C. Sevenoaks 7th Bn. and displayed courage and initiative of a very high order. Though at times surrounded by enemy tanks and infantry, and repeatedly under heavy fire from artillery and L.M.G. he made several reconnaissance in a fearless manner, and brought back reliable information which greatly assisted in getting the party away safely. In addition his cheerfulness throughout did a great deal towards sustaining the men’s confidence and spirits.
