On November 21st, Trooper Glenn’s tank was hit in the front and his visors and his compartment were badly shot up; the gunner was killed and the operator wounded and were incapable of giving Trooper Gleen’s assistance.

His squadron leader jumped into his tank with a new gunner and although the internal communication was broken, Trooper Glenn drove on with great coolness and indifference to heavy fire, and so enabled the squadron leader to rally the remains of the squadron.

This coolness under fire and his assistance to the wounded were a great example to the shaken men around him.
