This Distinguised Conduct Medal was awarded to Albert Jennett for his bravery on 28 April 1915 at Gallipoli. His citation reads “An officer of the Argyll Mountain Battery had had his leg blown off and was lying in the open exposed to a heavy fire. Sapper Jennett, with the assistance of another man, voluntarily went out, crossing over a very difficult wire entanglement under heavy fire, and succeeded in bringing him into safety. He gave a conspicuous example of courage and self-sacrifice”.
