“On the night of 11-12 May 44 during the Gari River crossing operation L/Cpl BAGLEY R. Volunteered to remain alone with his wireless set at the Beach Signal Masters post, after his second operator had to be withdrawn suffering from shell shock. Besides operating his wireless set L/Cpl Bagley acted as telephone orderly, and on many occasions during the night crawled out of his slit trench to repair the telephone line himself despite constant and accurate shelling, mortaring and machine-gun fire. By his devotion to duty and complete disregard for his personal safety, L/Cpl Bagley maintained both line and wireless commn single handed during the most critical stage of the assault”.
