A few weeks ago we announced that Corporal C.F. Pascoe, son of Mr. and Mrs. W.A. Pascoe, Trinity View, Ventnor, had won the Military Medal. Some particulars are to hand of the exploit wherein Corporal Pascoe, who is in the Manchester Regiment, distinguished himself. Accompanied by another man he went 200 yards to a detached post to bring in a wounded man. They dressed and carried the man 700 yards across the open in broad daylight in spite of rifle, machine-gun fire, and sniping, machine gun firing from an aeroplane, and in the latter stages very heavy shell fire. Congratulations are deserved on this gallant act, and we take pleasure in conveying them to our gallant townsman.
