- Second World War (1939-1945)
- Temporary Captain
- 12 Indian Mountain Battery 24 Indian Mountain Regiment, Indian Army
- Awarded on:
- February 8th, 1945
Recommendation (drawn up) 12th May 1944):
"Ever since first going into action with his Battery in the Arakan in January 1944 Capt. Janson has been conspicuous for his aggressive determination to kill the enemy. This quality had full scope both in the box at Ngakyedauk in February and again in Kohima in April, on both occasions the garrisons were at the closest possible quarters with the enemy. Capt Janson quickly proved himself a master not only of the local defence but of local offence. His grenade throwing won him the admiration of the Infantry. His demeanour under heavy fire is extremely calm and purposeful. his courage is exemplary. His ability to organise and inspire his men in battle has cost the enemy dearly and helped to beat off many attacks."
