The bravery of Bombadier Munns

submitted by Tom Munns

My great, great, grandad Bombadier Egerton Munns of the 112 Battery, 25th Division, the Royal Field Artillery, has been awarded the Military Medal for heroism in establishing communication between his battery and the advanced infantry. A new position had been taken up preparatory to the attack, but it was difficult to get a communication, as the wires kept breaking. Bombadier Munns and two comrades set off in the dark for the infantry headquarters, and passed through a hail of shells, and succeeded, though all three were wounded.
