    Lieutenant-Colonel (temporary Colonel) William Somerset Seymour, Royal Army Service Corps, was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire.
    Colonel Seymour has served as Deputy Director of Supply and Transport, Malta Command, for the whole preparation period March to June, 1943, for the invasion of Sicily.

    During this period he had to make all arrangements for the reception of large quantities of supplies and petrol and to arrange the transport to move troops staging through Malta to and from the docks, and although faced with a shortage of personnel and transport, on no occasion was there the slightest hitch either in the distribution of rations, victual ling of landing craft or in movement of troops.

    Colonel Seymour’s untiring zeal during a very trying period was an inspiration to the R.A.S.C. in Malta.

    He was born in Longford.
