Albert Edward Wallis was recommended for the MM for acts of gallantry and devotion to duty in the field.  Below is an extract from a recommendation made on the 8th November 1917

For conspicuous gallantry in the field – On the right flank this man galloped into the retiring Turks and took the surrender of 1 officer, 9 men and one machinegun with 2 complete packs.  His actions and dash dumbfounded the enemy and I consider him worthy of special award.  He was detached from his troop at the time as flank guard, and his actions single-handedly speak for itself.
