Sergeant Stanley John Mullard,
14241800, Cameron Highlanders, 4 Cdo
At Flushing on 1st November 1944, this NCO,after the initial assault on the beach, assisted his Section Officer in manning a captured anti-tank gun mounted on the roof of a pillbox, and engaged several enemy pillboxes which were interfering with the approach of subsequent flights of landing craft. To enable more effective fire to be brought to bear, Sgt Mullard unhesitatingly went forward and took up a desparately exposed position from which he controlled the fire by signals. His coolness and courage in the accomplishment of this task were instrumental in the silencing of the series of pillboxes and two strong gun positions in casements which were surrendered by the enemy.
