LCpl Amos was in charge of an A.A. gun crew on S.S. Cavallo, carrying troops to GREECE.

The Master, in his report on the bombing and setting fire of his ship off Eleusis Bay on or about 1st May 1941, stated, “My guns were served by a very brave and constant crews“. LCpl Amos at his Lewis gun seemed to have only one idea and I feel sure he would have kept on firing if a ‘plane had dropped on him’.
