For consistently gallant and meritorious conduct in the field.

Major Wall was Brigade Major of 7th Armoured Brigade for six months, including the period of the SIDI REZEGH operations. Throughout the operations his cheerful and imperturbable conduct were an example to all those with whom he came in contact.

His cool and quick judgment under fire and his brilliant staff work under difficult conditions and in the presence of the enemy contributed largely to the success of his brigade.

His gallantry was especially noticeable throughout 20th, 21st and 22nd November at SIDI REZEGH, when he frequently left his tank to convey messages over an intervening space, under heavy fire of all natures, to his brigadier.
