2nd Lieutenant Heinrich Leon Seligsohn, London Regiment.
For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. Having brought up a party of men from the Transport lines, he took up a line in front of a village, where he was attacked in great force. He held out for many hours, but was finally driven back.  He rallied his men on the other side of the village, and with the greatest dash and determination led a. charge through the village and recaptured the line, thereby undoubtedly saving a very serious situatio.
