Unit: 204th Field Company, 43rd (Wessex) DivisionArmy No.: 2006847Awards: Military MedalOn the 25th September 1944 during the assault operation of relieving and supplying 1st Airborne Division, Corporal Liddell was in charge of 3 assault boats manned by his section. The whole operation was carried out under intense Machine Gun and mortar fire. In spite of his boats being holed and other crews being wounded he contrived to keep 3 boats in operation throughout. Corporal Liddell only stopped when there were no boats left, and all his were out of action. Corporal Liddell through his exceptional energy, initiative and devotion to duty materially affected the quantity of men and supplies sent over to 1st Airborne Division.
