Dedicated to

Lance Sergeant Peter Francis McCarthy 3775704, 4 Cdo

Military Medal

Operation Jubilee, Dieppe Area 19th August 1942.
Sjt McCarthy was in charge of the section responsible, under Major Mills Roberts
for engaging the enemy Battery with frontal small arms fire. At a great personal risk
Sjt McCarthy worked the bren gunners forward, making skillful use of ground,
to almost point blank range of the enemy pillbox defenses. All machine-guns were
silenced and it was largely due to Sjt McCarty's intelligent handling of his section ,
and personal example, that such excellent results were obtained.
