Military Medal (London Gazette 1st March 1945)
“In a Company attack West of PLESSIS GRIMOULT on the 9th August 1944, Private BROMWICH was acting as runner to the Company Commander. During the close approach to the objective the Company Commander was fired on by a Spandau at close range. Private BROMWICH eliminated this Spandau crew single handed with his rifle. On a number of occasions although under fire he carried messages to sections as to the positions they were to take up and finally when the Company 2i/c was hit again although under fire he tended him until stretcher bearers could evacuate.
Throughout the action Private BROMWICH showed great courage and devotion to duty worthy of the highest praise.”
Private Bromwich was from Leamington Spa. He joined ‘B’ Company of the 1st Battalion and served with them throughout the war.
