    Lieutenant John Graham Lord, M.B., Royal Army Medical Corps, was awarded the Military Cross.
    On May 29th, 1940, when one of our anti-tank guns was in action near his Aid Post, engaging advancing enemy tanks, Lieutenant Lord displayed courage and devotion to duty of a very high order. In the ensuing action, while fighting at very close range, the anti-tank gun was gradually overcome by superior numbers and all the gun crew hit.

    Lieutenant Lord attended to each casualty at the gun position as it occurred, under heavy fire, treated them at his Aid Post and eventually got the wounded away in his truck under heavy machine-gun fire.

    Lieutenant Lord comes from Mullingar.
