Fiftieth Day of the Third Battle of Ypres

Tuesday 18th September 1917

The fiftieth day of this new offensive has not been marked by any offensive actions, everyone holding the line and, seemingly, waiting for something. Following the awards of medals to other ranks of the 7th Bedfords yesterday we have heard today that the Military Cross has been awarded to Lieutenant and Quartermaster F Corner and to Captain J A Vlasto of the Royal Army Medical Corps, the Battalion Medical Officer. A bar to his MC has also been awarded to Captain W W Colley.
