HONOUR FOR MIDLANDS SOLDIER

A BIRMINGHAM D.C.M

Lance-corporal Arthur Samuels, of the Worcestershire Regiment, now attached to the Machine Gun Corps, who was recently awarded to the D.C.M., is a Birmingham man. His parents live in Green Lane, Small Heath, and his wife and two children at 3, Kingston Terrace, St. Andrew’s Road, and he was formerly employed by Latch and Batchelor, Ltd., Hay Mill. He is an old soldier, having enlisted soon after the South African war, and was called up as a reservist on the outbreak of the present war. He has since seen a great deal of service, having been present in many engagements. Skill and initiative in the use of the machine-gun during important operations gained him the decoration.
