|Maj. (T./Lt.-Col.) D. Ahern, D.S.O., No. 11 Fld Amb., R.A.M.C., has received a Bar to his D.S.O.For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty from August 30 to September 3, 1918, during operations on the Arras front. He was responsible for the clearing of casualties from the divisional front. He showed great forethought in selecting sites for his forward posts, especially in establishing one post in a village which proved to be of the utmost value as an A.D.S. later on. He was wounded while at his work, but refused to leave until the conclusion of operations. His energy and resource were instrumental in the prompt evacuation of the wounded.|
