Lance Sergeant Peter Francis McCarthy 3775704, 4 Cdo
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.
