Name on ROH: W.A. BOWER
Military Medal citation: "On 6th September 1918 in front of Tincourt, Private William Bowen, showing utter disregard of personal safety and with great pluck and dash, led an attack on an enemy post. Under fire from at least four machine guns and many snipers, he successfully guided a party around to their flank while the remainder of the platoon engaged the enemy from the front with Lewis Guns, putting the enemy to flight and inflicting severe losses on them. Throughout the operations he showed great bravery and set an exceptionally fine example to the rest of the men, under most trying circumstances, which greatly increased their morale.
