Croix De Guerre with Bronze Star (London Gazette date ?)
“Corporal CHAMBERS landed with the Battalion on D plus 14 and has served throughout the campaign with his Company. At MOUEN under intense shell fire his conduct was of the highest order and he did much to maintain the moral of the troops under his command. At PLESSIS GRIMOULT he led this section with great determination and consolidated on the objective when his company had received very heavy casualties. Finally in an engagement immediately after the crossing of the SEINE he did much whilst leading the forward section of his Company to enable a successful action to be carried out. He has shown a very high standard of leadership and drive in battle, and has carried out patrols successfully and with determination.”
