947337 SJT D McCRINDLE, 124 Field Regiment RA 50th (Northumbrian) Division

'Sgt McCRINDLE was NCO in charge of Battery Signals of 441 Battery 124 Field Regiment RA, On the afternoon of 19 July 1944 it was necessary to lay a new line from the Battery position to the Observation Post in the Infantry FDL's and as NCO in charge of signals Sgt McCRINDLE took charge of the line laying party. On approaching the forward position the track along which the line was being laid was heavily shelled by the enemy and shelling continued over the whole area. On reaching the cross roads the party again came under very concentrated and accurate shell fire and it was decided an overhead crossing was essential. On both the above occasions Sgt McCRINDLE showed supreme courage, and telling his party to keep under cover, himself laid the greater part of the line, including the overhead crossing, under continuous shellfire.

The shellfire at the crossroads was so concentrated that the line was shot away twice and it was soley due to Sgt McCRINDLE's coolness and devotion to duty during these operations and later at the cross roads at LE LION VERT where he came under enemy machine gun fire that the line was got through. Throughout this difficult and hazardous task Sgt McCRIDNDLE showed great coolness and determination and set a fine example not only to his own men, but to all other units in the neighbourhood. His line was through some hours before any other untit's line in the area, and enabled support to be given to the infantry at a critical time'.

The 50th Division was a First Line Territorial division which had fought in France & Belgium 1939-40, North Africa & Tunisia 1942-43, and Italy 1943. It then returned to England and trained for D Day, landing at Gold Beach on 6th June 1944. It then occupied the line around Tilly sur Seulles, where it remained until the breakout. The Divisional Commander was Major General D.A.H. Graham.
