65184 PRIVATE H. GRANT M.M.
In the attack on Takrouna on the night of April 19/20 1943 Pte Grant was a member of the small party which stormed the front crowning the village. Throughout the action he showed outstanding courage and dash. On the morning of April 22 he led a small party along the western slope and captured approx. 50 prisoners from well dug-in positions. During the whole two days' struggle he repeatedly guided reinforcements into the positions, constantly exposing himself without regard for danger, and became established in the hazardous position of official guide.
